July 2010


+ Was I lucky or not? +

All jobs in Irkutsk were finished and the 23rd of July, finally, I have to go back to Japan. When my friend and I talked about it was the time to go to the airport, my friend's cell phone rang. It was bad news. It told me that the flight would be at least two hours delay.

What's that!?

You know, there are no direct flight connection between Irkutsk and Japan. This time, I would take the flight to Vladivostok and take the flight to Toyama not to Niigata because the last summer I had to take a flight Niigata and I have the experience of the six and half hours. Anyways, in this situation told me that it was so hard to take the flight to Toyama in Vladivostok because of the flight delay. If I couldn't take the flight what I would be able to do in Vladivostok? Especially, this is Russia, unfortunately I already knew that a lot of people don't speak English even though the airport staff. I couldn't any negotiation, I HAVE NO IDEA!

When I arrived to the airport with my friend, I found that the flight delayed about four hours and it meant that I would not be able to catch the flight to Toyama.

However, I was lucky.

The person who I met in the airport was my student. Really, really, really I was lucky. The student had a plan to go to Japan for studying Japanese in this summer and she had the same ticket from Irkutsk and Vladivostok. However in her case, she would stay a night in Vladivostok and would take a flight to Niigata on the following day. Anyways, I could stay cool until Vladivostok thanks to her. Then, she negotiated with the person in charge of the Air Company, for me. She was goddess for me. The responsible staff promised to reserve a hotel and to make a procedure for changing the flight to the following day. I could find a light in the dark.

However, something strange.

Well, well, well, the flight on the following day? It, it, it means the flight to Niigata?!

Oh, the six and half hour... Even such situation is better than not be able to go back to Japan. After all, I could be with the student until get to Niigata,

Yes, I can say that I was Lucky!



+ Yeah, I was Lucky +

The hotel which the Air Company reserved was not hotel. It was like a dormitory for the Air Company's staff. And the problem was waiting for me. It was no hot water in the shower room. Well, you shouldn't be surprised so much. Actually, the experience of living in Russia for two years had made me so wild that to take a water shower. Yes, I was lucky because it was summer.

I drank a bottle of Russian beer at the night and had remembered my Russian life. I could live in Russia thanks to a lot of helps by a lot of people. Actually, it was a little bit hard; however, I had enjoyed the life in Russia. I had got tears by Japanese however never by Russians. Yeah, I like Russian people. Thanks.

I could drink such extra Russian beer, yeah, I was lucky.



Vladivostok →→→ Niigata ∼∼∼∼∼∼→ Tsuruga



Then I got to Tsuruga in the mid night after the six and half hours.

I'm Home!
