It was Hiro-san’s first trip to England when he settled in the county town of Kent, Maidstone. He lived close to the North Downs and could easily walk through the wooded countryside that led up the chalky hills. It was a rare, sunny day and trekking up the hills made him sweat in the warming heat – so much so that he had to take his hat off and laid it on the grass.
“So!” he thought, “This is where Mrs Fryer’s class came for a camp! Wow! The rolling hills of the Kent countryside are beautiful! それは本当にきれいです。マタ来ます!!” (Hontoni kirei, mata kimass – It’s beautiful! I must come back!)
