As I described in my previous article, we got to the host-family's home early in the morning. Therefore, the host-mother showed us several places in their neighborhood.

First, we went to a big shopping center. In Japan, there are a lot of shopping centers too. But, whenever I go to a Western country, I am always overwhelmed by the size of a shopping center. Everything is big in Western countries!

Next, we went to a library. There are many books and magazines inside, of course, as it is a library. I found that there are plenty of computers too.

Finally, we went to a club of sorts. I was pleased that I was able to take photos of a raffle. I am a big fan of Western literature and I often read a passage where an author mentions “raffle”. However, I had never seen a raffle. This time, I was excited to see a live raffle.

Firstly, people purchase raffle tickets.

When the time comes, a person in charge begins to call the winning numbers.

This time, the number of the first place was 962.

Unfortunately, our numbers were not called.

Anyway, I was able to see a room of Bingo games too. I thought that Western people have a variety of ways to enjoy themselves.

*英語ミニ知識:「I am always overwhelmed by the size of a shopping center. →私はいつもショッピングセンターの大きさに圧倒されます。」“overwhelmed”は「圧倒される」という意味の過去分詞の形容詞です。*
