先週1週間授業が吹き飛んでしまった私。 観光もいいが，活動中の他の隊員を見るのも 一興だということで，以下のようなプランを 考えた。 All the lesson in last week blew away. Of course, just sightseeing is good idea. Observing another JOCV's (Japan Overseas Cooperation Volunteer) activity is more fun. I planned below.
Mon at Dangla HPE teacher at high school and Science teacher at primary school Tue at Durbete HPE teacher at high school and Science teacher at primary school Wed moving to south Thu at Ziway HPE teacher at high school Fri at Mojo Science teacher at primary school and chicken husbandry instructor
ドルベテの理科隊員以外は皆1次隊の同期。 Everyone except science teacher at Durbete and I joined JICA at the same time.
月曜と火曜は任地から日帰りで見学。 Mon and Tue were day trips from my town to observe.
そして任地から一番遠いズワイまでバスを2本乗り継ぎ 13時間半ぐらいかかります。 It takes about 13 and a half hour from my town to the farthest destination, Ziway.
5日間で7人の活動を見る欲張りなプラン。 本当はもう2人見たかったのだが，飛行機移動ができず 時間がとれないので見れなかった。 It is a little greedy plan that I observe 7 JOCVs in 5 days. I wanted observe another 2 JOCVs but I didn't have enough time because I couldn't get an air ticket and I need to move by bus.
I was surprised at preparing good conditions in laboratories. I was impressed with smooth communication with students in English. I renewed my target that I should use local language when I observe HPE teachers try to approach students in local languages. It brainstormed me that chicken husbandry instructor was struggling with difference of their opinion.
他の隊員の活動は刺激になります。 特に同期隊員は2ヶ月同じ釜の飯を食った仲。 彼・彼女らのがんばりに自分もやる気を喚起されました。 Another JOCV's activities act as good stimuli. Especially JOCVs who joined JICA at the same time are good company who and I spent for 2 month in the closed training center. Their struggling motivated me.
帰りにアジスに寄って帰国する4人の最終報告も 傾聴。こちらもまた感慨深い。 On the way to my host town, I reached at Addis Ababa and I heard final report by 3 JOCVs and SV (senior volunteer). Their reports also impressed me.
少々疲れたけど，新たな刺激を感じれたこと， みんなでワイワイ楽しく過ごせたことでかなり リフレッシュした。 明日からまたがんばれそうだなぁ。 Though I was tired a little, I can be refreshed because I got new stimuli and I enjoyed spending joyful time. I can work lively from tomorrow.
