July 21: Two Changshin students in Oita

@@by Mie

The Korean high school students got together this morning to Beppu College at 9:30 for sightseeing around Beppu. Unfortunately, the weather is still rainy and humid. In the evening, we again drove to the college to pick the two students up. Mr. Kimoto (left: back in white shirt), the principal of Beppu high school, is busy in managing the arrival. A paster, to the right of Mr. Kimoto, is also taking care of the students. Mr. Yang looks like very happy (right.)
As it was raining, they first visited African Safari, then changed the schedule to visit Deodeo, a big electric shop in downtown Oita, and Marine Palace. Our schedule from now is to look around central Oita.
After looking around a CD shop and other popular places to young guys, we enjoyed Italian dishes. A baloon-like pasta made us delighted. The big volume of the food was very tasty as well.
We then visited COARA, our Internet provider. They will have a live air "Internet Life" tonight through the FM radio and the Internet simultaneously. Mr. Yang and Mr. Park will appear on the program. Miss Kusamoto (right), a member of COARA, welcomed us in English.coara insider
