ALL ENGLISH !
The smallest part of an element is an atom. It used to be thought that
atoms are indivisible but they can be broken down into many difficult sub-
atomic particles. All atoms, with the exception of hydrogen, are made up
of three fundamental sub-atomic particles-protons,neutrons,and electrons.
I studied atoms.
Tindo Public buses which all power is covered by sunlight.
If they charge once, they run 200km a power source is sunlight energy,
and it’s 100 persent. The origin of name is sun in Aborigine.
A solar panel on roof
I saw solar panels more than Japan. Australia is the greatest a number
of solar panel installation in the world. Adelaide is famous of solar city
which forward solar power generation, and the best comfortable city in
Rainwater tank every house
Australia is the driest continent in the world. Water is very precious,
and Australian use rainwater for life. I was restricted taking a shower
and washing in host family’s home. When they wash dishes, they soak dishes
in water. They sprinkle water on plants by remnants of water. To imagine
Australian life that water is important may be impossible for Japanese
because we use water freely.
Positive in recycling
Collection of rubbish by type is famous in Japan. But in Australia, there
was fight better than Japan. If they bring rubbish to be kept separate
to recycling center, they can receive money. So, they are full of energy.
Bringing eco-bag to supermarket is obvious in Australia.
My buddy is a scientist.
In my host family, other two students did a homestay at same time. They
are from Thailand and Singapore. I felt Asian power. One of them and I

Technical terms are English. So, I felt a need for studying the science
A fireplace is foundation
This may be only my host family home…. They don’t have a fan heater and
an air-conditioner like Japan. They have only fireplace in a living room.
It’s very cold in my room, so I went to bed by putting on many layers of
clothing. At night, they go to bed very early. Is the reason of this that
useless light is unnecessary? I felt using electricity in Japan is very
Water is very expensive!
To be surprised in Australia is that we can’t use water freely. A bottle
of mineral water (500ml) is about \300 in Japanese money. So, I bought
juice and sweet soda unintentionally. Be careful for corpulence.
Electricity is sunlight
At night in Adelaide, there are many solar streetlights. Australia established
a carbon tax,so it may be that they must shift to clean energy.
Beautiful city that has nature
Adelaide is a small city that has sea and mountain nearly. If we move by
car, we can go anywhere. The actual place is winter, but there are blue
sea and blue sky…. Air is very clear…. I felt it’s like Kamakura in Japan.
A self-sufficient lifestyle in such a city may be good.
