As I mentioned in my previous article, I had left my camera at the host family's house in Brisbane. When I was leaving, I realized that I didn't have the camera with me. But I couldn't miss the airplane. Finally, I left without the camera.

The day before yesterday, the camera's SD card arrived. Anna, the host-mother, kindly sent it to me. Thank you so much, Anna. So I can write about my stay in Brisbane with photos.

We left Japan in the evening of the 23rd and arrived at Gold Coast airport around 6:30 next day. The flight was about 9 hours. The flight is long, but the time difference is only one hour. Therefore, we were not so tired.

At the airport, I went to an information desk and asked what the best way to go to Brisbane was. As I expected, going to Varsity Lakes station by bus was the fastest and the cheapest. We took a bus there, and at Varsity Lakes, we took a train. The photo below is Varsity Lakes station.

The train was clean and speedy. Usually, it takes about 1 hour and 20 minutes from Varsity Lakes to Central station, which is in the center of Brisbane.

But this time, because of the rail maintenance, we couldn't go to Central directly. I don't remember the station's name exactly but we had to get on a substitute bus from some station to Roma Street. At Roma Street station, we took a taxi and visited our host family.

When I arrived at their home, I was so impressed to see very beautiful rooms.

We shared this bathroom.

We arrived there around ten. Anna, the host-mother, was very surprised that we were able to get there so soon. It was Saturday and we still had plenty of time. Anna kindly drove us to several places in her neighborhood. I will write about it in my next article.

*英語ミニ知識:「As I mentioned in my previous article, I had left my camera at the host family's house in Brisbane.→前回の記事で述べましたように、私は ブリスベンのホストファミリーの家にカメラを置いてきてしまいました。」 前の記事で述べたのより、カメラを置いてきてしまったことの方が前のことです。こういう時には過去完了を使う必要があります。よく生徒さんには“時間差がある時に使いましょう”と説明しています。*
