Curry Rice, Dodge Ball and River


C'est avec un peu de retard que je mets en ligne deux petites photos d'une journée passée dans deux écoles de Misasa, Minami et Higashi, le 22 juillet.
A l'école élémentaire Minami, avec les enfants nous avons fait du riz au curry et de la balle aux prisonniers pendant la cuisson. Il faisait chaud, mais le curry était réussi !
Ensuite, je suis allé à l'école élémentaire Higashi pour jouer dans la rivière avec les élèves. Malgré la chaleur estivale, l'eau était un peu froide mais cela faisait du bien de se rafraîchir un peu. De quoi passer une bonne journée !

I am a little bit late but, on July 22nd, I spent the day in two different elementary school of Misasa.
At Minami elementary school, I made curry rice with kids before we play dodge ball together. It was hot and sweaty, but the curry rice was good !
Then, I went to Higashi elementary school and all the school, kids and teachers included, went to play in the river nearby. The water was a bit cold, but in the heat of Japanese summer it was nice to refresh ourself in the river. It was a nice way to spend the day!
