Leaving Miyakeshima


So the event went off as expected and things were looking just fine, we had our last lunch on the Island and I enjoyed a big dish of Curry with a deep fried pork chop on top! It is a very popular dish in Japan called, Katsu Curry Rice! Then we got on the boat and everybody waved goodbye, the locals were all there sending us off in style with lots of Banzai's and there were a few tears here and there...Then about 10min. out from the harbour we hit the open seas and the boat started rocking like crazy, I hate being rocked like that back and forth, so I tried staying in my cabin lying down curled up in the fetal position. But it didn't last very long and when I decided to go out on the deck for a bit of fresh air, it was a lot more than fresh air I got. I ended up barfing all the curry up and crawling back into my bunk. Where I tried to think of happy things, but after repeatedly going back and forth from the sick and bunk I eventually fell asleep and made it back to Tokyo...That is exactly what happened last year, so next year I am thinking that I need to take the airplane home, even if I have to wait another day or so. I can always spend the extra day Scuba diving, apparently it is a haven over there because of the warm waters from the volcano.


イベントは無事に終わりました、自分はステージの上で来年は三宅島の子供に空手の教室をやりたいと言いましたので、来年は本当に楽しみです。そして、港の近くにあるホテルに入って昼ごはんを食べました、僕は元気が出るようにカツカレーライスにしました。船からの別れは本当にグットくるものがあります、みんなに手を振りながら万歳です。若い子は少し涙を出しました、これはやっぱり来年もやりたいイベントですね!しかし、船は島から離れた10分で本当の旅が始まった。そとの風は気持ちよかったですが台風が近くまで来ていると聞いた瞬間”やばい”と思った。それではやっぱり思った通り本当にやばかったです、船はゆれるゆれる~~~大変でした、一時間我慢できたけど!もう無理って感じになった時に外の空気でリフレシュするつもりで立ったけど、そのまま洗面上に向かって昼のカツカレーはそこでさよならしました。。。ちょう大変だった!最後は赤ちゃんのように体を丸めてベッドで何とか寝れた。来年は島に残って、ダイビングをして飛行機で帰りたいです。昨年と今年で連続ゲロですので、本当にきついです。
