この日曜日，バハルでの2年の活動を終えて日本に 帰る先輩の送別会があった。 On Sunday I joined a farewell party for a precursor, who almost finished her volunteer work of 2 years and leaves here.
この先輩は多くの逸話，いや伝説の持ち主だ。 She is a legend of JICA volunteer in Ethiopia.
赴任2日目にして，家に賊に入られ全ての物を盗まれた。 She had all her belongings stolen by a thief on 2nd day she started to live.
並の神経の持ち主ならここでやる気をなくすが， 彼女は日本から必要なものを取り寄せ，任地に戻ってきた。 A person with ordinary mental may lose motivation, but she was so tough that she had anything she needed sent to her and came back her host city.
すれ違う子供に水をかけられたり，配属先の職員と 喧嘩したり，街中の若い男に五月蠅くつきまとわれたりと エチオピアが嫌いになる逸話にはことかかない。 She was splashed by a child when he passed each other. She had quarrels with co-workers in her host office. She was followed round by young men in the city. Why she dislikes Ethiopia was because there were such episodes.
