Show 209 Tuesday 28 November

Watch today’s show at YouTube or BlipTV.

Hi, I’m Sarah. Welcome to The Daily English Show. I have a copy of the Niseko Trail Map for this season.
The mountain is called Niseko An’nupuri and it’s 1308 meters high and there are four areas: An’nupuri, Higashiyama, Hirafu and Hanazono. You can buy passes for all the areas or just one area. I’ve never been to An’nupuri or Higashiyama because last year when we came we just bought passes just for the Grand Hirafu area which is Hirafu and Hanazono.
Today’s questionanswer is about Niseko.


Kia ora in Stick News today desperate times for The Daily English Show – the lack of the internet has forced the staff to work in the streets.

The Daily English Show has just moved into one of the most stylish buildings in Kutchan.
Newly refurbished, the studio now boasts flawless paintwork and a breathtaking instillation piece.
The furniture even features artwork by local up and coming artists.
Just moments after moving in, there was free-flowing gas, electricity and even water ... the only element missing was the internet.
In the following days tdes staff desperately searched Kutchan for a place to use the internet... finally finding what seemed like the perfect place to upload.
But staff were shocked when they returned the following day with laptops to find the bar had taken an inexplicable off day.
In a sterling show of dedication, the show’s producer then sat in freezing temperatures in the street to upload.

And that was Stick News for Tuesday the 28th of November.
Kia ora.

Sadly, it didn’t snow today. It started raining at night time. This is the view from my bedroom window.

Megan So, where’ve you been uploading the show?

Sarah Mmm, various places. A hotel let us use the net in their restaurant one day even though we weren’t customers. That was nice.

Megan And you used it in the street yesterday?

Sarah Yeah, I found this bar that has wireless LAN so we went to use the internet – but it was closed for some reason.

Megan So you just used it in the street ...

Sarah Yeah.

Megan Was the connection OK?

Sarah Yeah, it was really fast.
