Today was the annual BBQ party of our company. Me and Manu first didn't intend to go, but then decided to give it a try, because it would probably our obnly chance to attend a big party of a Japanese company.
In the morning some people met at the common room of the Youth Heim, where I live, for cutting vegetables. Alas they already met at 8:30 in the morning, but because of the farewell and birthday party for Amyko and Youngki yesterday, we slept until 9:30 o'clock. For the sake of the party we made german Pfannkuchen / Palatschinken (German pancakes), so we had some dough left. That's why I decided, being too late for helping anyway, to make a nice breakfast for the cutters. They loved our pancakes =D
It was raining in the morning, but luckily the sky cleared up and the sun came out for the whole afternoon. So around 12:00 o'clock we went to the riverside of 相模 (Sagami) river, where the party was held. There were many people of our company, though most of them were of the younger ones.
Luckily there were plenty of vegetables: carrots, potatoes, salad, pumpkin, mushrooms and corn, so neither me nor Manu had to hunger starve. Apart from that there was plenty of sweets and drinks. It is really amazing how much they bought for the party.
The 相模 river is really beautiful in its three different colors, we really had a lot of fun and a really nice time. We played Frisbee, threw rocks into the river, pick nicked on the ground, joked around and simply enjoyed ourselves and the nice weather. It is so cool how nice people from so many different cultures can get along with each other =D
Later we went together with Ryan and Alex to a All You Can Play Game Center (unlimited credits for a limited time span) and started with the night bus to 京都 (Kyoto) with Hung Lun afterwards.
