Please let me write the memories of my homestay today. I experienced the first homestay in my forties about three years ago. I stayed the home of a Judaism believer couple in Sydney for nine days. It was also the first Australia ,the first study abroad and the first meeting of Judaism believer for me. So everything was full of the surprise and excitement. In that time, I went to an English conversation school in City from the host family’s house everyday by bus. In the school, there were many foreigners,and I was neither a housewife or not mother, and was just student. And I really enjoyed learning English and doing activities with classmates. Then, I went to grocery shopping and did my homework with host father, and I went to a beach and a hill with host mother in her car. On Friday night, they had a home party, and I sang the songs for prayer of Judaism together. I knew their special rule and custom for Judaism for the first time. And I often met their grandchildren and the neighbors. I couldn't speak English well, but I didn't have any troubles. In those days, I seem that I had nerves of iron than now maybe. Anyway, I had a lot of wonderful experiences, and I remember I thought that living positively was a universal important mind to men and women of all ages!
This is Sydney Harbour Bridge. When crossing this bridge by bus I could see very beautiful Opera House.
