. the next two days of work consisted of me and Michelle building a shelter for the cows food and hay and a bike shed. then Thursday and Friday consisted of us weeding an entire field of cabbages, we just don't want to go back there lets not talk about it. We wanted to go out to dinner but theres no where to eat out in Mukawa so kaz and naomi let us have the bbq hut to ourselves for a night together (alcohol is cheap here we bought a bottle of wine for 1.50p, they sell vodka 5.00 a bottle and also (dad and Carl will like this) 4 litre bottles of whiskey for 15.00. it was a good night. then on sat night we went to the town`s Shinto Shrine for the largest festival in the year, the food was great and the kids dressed up and did a dance it was soo cute Michelle wants us to take one of the kids home with us. We are really enjoying it here and are now going to be here until the beginning of November (Kaz and the kids wont let us leave). Thats all for now lots of love Peter and Michelle. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx.
Well here we are in Mukawa staying with our 1st wwoof hosts Naomi and Kazsu Yamaya, Oba-san (Grandma Yamaya) and their 3 children Hirioaki (8), Asuka (5) and Satoru (3). Its life on the farm for us now as they rear cows for beef and grow cabbages to sell (as well as some other things). We thought we would be losing weight while we are here but Naomi and Kaz keep us filled with so much great food. Mukawa is like an American town you cannot go anywhere without a car but me and Michelle try to walk into town for a look around anyway. Our first day of work entailed us weeding a large green house then fixing the barbed wire cow fences (they got out and ate the neighbors cabbages). Then an easy weekend of visiting the kids harvest festival at the school on sat. monday the first day of work was interesting Michelle oh lucky Michelle gets to pick cabbages while i get to shovel a months worth of cow crap out of their barn, lets say i smelt a bit. then i did a bit of key stage 3 carpentry were i was left to fix the wooden windows of the cow barn
