I’ll talk about my most interesting experience in Australia which was going to my host mother’s niece’s shed on the Tablelands. My host mother’s niece has a property with a big hill on it. There is a shed there with three bedrooms in it. You can see the shed in the picture on the left. The property is quite big and it has a pond. There are a lot of animals – seven horses, a lot of geese and three dogs. The right picture shows the pond and the geese. I went there because my host mother wanted to show me a platypus. There are a few platypuses living in the pond. I was taken there twice but I couldn’t spot any platypus. However, it was a valuable experience for me. I fed the geese and went for a ride on a quad bike. You can see the quad bike in the right photo. My host mother’s niece’s son took me for a ride. You can’t do any of these things in Tokyo so I had an amazing time. This has been my most interesting experience in Australia.
