Show 492 Friday 7 September

Watch today’s show at YouTube or BlipTV.

On Thursday morning we left home at 10am.
Before we left Nelson we made a special guest appearance at an elementary school.
We told the students the story of Momotaro. We taught them how to count to five in Japanese and had a quick shodo lesson.
We wrote heiwa with paint brushes and black paint.
I thought their shuji was pretty good!

This is the class watching Show 444.

Screw the red parts back on.
Carry the feeder outside, upside down.

And this is the school library. Nice library eh?

After school, we went to the airport in Castlegar.
The woman who checked us in was super nasty ... but the guy checking our boarding passes was really nice so at least Castlegar airport doesn’t get zero stars. Maybe one.

This was our plane. Air Canada Jazz.
We had a nice view.
I wonder what a cowl is.

In Vancouver Airport we went to a bar and I did some editing and drank some beer.
Then we got on our next flight. Not a jazz plane this time.

I was really impressed with Air Canada’s entertainment system.
I watched a TV program called Desperate Housewives. I’d never seen that before. It was getting kind of interesting but then we started landing and it stopped.

These were our flight attendants, they were pretty cute.

Not much was going on in Edmonton airport, but we were only there for about an hour.
Then we got back on the plane. There were plugs and USB ports on this plane. Cool. So we charged our iPods and did some work on the computer.
We also watched Spiderman 3. Which was pretty cool. I think it might have been better if I had seen Spiderman one and two though.

Someone met us at Halifax airport. It was so cool. I’ve always wanted to be met at the airport by a person holding my name on a sign.

When we arrived it was 6am local time but 2am BC time and we hadn’t slept on the plane so we were pretty tired. But the woman who drove us to Wolfville was really nice so it was good talking to her.


平和 = へいわ = heiwa = peace





Desperate Housewives

Show 491 Thursday 6 September

Watch today's show at YouTube or BlipTV.

Today we're leaving Nelson, so I thought I'd show you some random things in Nelson before we go.
So this a pretty lake.
A plane.
A bridge.
This is a streetcar. We call them trams in New Zealand.
Check this out. Streetcar is one word here and here. And two words here.
Here are some boys playing Canadian tennis.
And this is me doing a citizenstand.
These are some ducks or geese or something by the lake.
Here they are again.
Yeah, they look more like geese than ducks.
And a dog chasing them.
A boat.
Another one.
Another duck.
The Wednesday markets in Nelson.
Nelson Curling Club in inverted commas. I wonder what it really is ... mmm must be something dodgy.
Blue skies.
I love Nelson.
A book shop.
How to drink beer and save the world. Sounds good.
This looks like a face.
Some billboards outside of Nelson. First this one used to say: grow a brain. Now it says: my life. I wonder what it’s going to say next.
Some clouds. Cool eh.
Some fish on a fence.
This is me walk past a pile of rocks. There are rock sculptures everywhere in Nelson.
Potatoes. We dug up all the potatoes.
Mmm delicious roast vegetables and wine.
