(ハイビスカスが咲いています。友人宅も今の時期に咲いているとか。。。やっぱり温暖化ですね。中までのぞくとまた楽しいですよ。） I injured my knee sprain 「sprain」は、足や手首をくじくことです。確か昔TOEICによく出てきたな。。。使わないから忘れてました。
Yesterday I went to work. The doctor said no more exercises. I cancelled my schedule at the gym. I will see my friend who is a good carpenter at woodworks. We belong to a volunteer association with about 40 members.
We do different volunteer works. Some members teach about chemicals, some teach children, some do teaching to handicapped persons, some give sewing lessons, some conduct classes for the elderly to prevent dementia. In Japan easy reading and simple calculations are good for the elderly to prevent dementia. They also do physical exercises.
What work are you involved in? Usually, I go to handicapped persons in a nursing home and sometimes I go there once a month to help them do gardening. We plant vegetables and prune the trees and clean their garden. I teach calligraphy and painting. I help the woodworking class last month and this month.
Every 3rd Sunday of the month I sell our woodworks. Our city operates a flea market in front of the station. This road is closed to traffic, but open to pedestrians. We display in many stalls and we are open from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. We have two stores, one sells woodworks and the other shop does alterations I enjoy doing my volunteer work because I get to talk to more people.
Taiwanese people love to eat ramen and they know where the best Japanese ramen are served. In expensive department stores, the staff can speak Japanese, Chinese, Taiwanese and English. Business is booming for electronic appliances, pharmacy. They buy in bulk.
