ゼミ合宿 (Zemi Class Camp) Day 3

I'm in Malaysia! For my sub-zemi - we're attending an industrial show, which has been quite interesting so far. And now, time for the last part of my main zemi's camp.

So, most of you have heard my election-day story, where I had not enough sleep. Well, I probably mentioned in there, but I'll mention it again. The third day of the camp started with me waking up before 6 to go fishing.

Fishing isn't even my hobby. I have got to stop taking an interest in so many things.

Although I'll have to admit, I got some pretty nice shots of the sky.

My senior was actually planning to fish just outside the bay area, but when I scrambled up, I realised that skirt+ocean breeze = bad idea. I was going to wait at the bottom, but they (senior and classmate) were nice and came down. We ended up fishing among the parked boats.

And still, I was the first one to get up and start walking around. I actually decided to climb a sort of wall-like thing (that didn't have so much of a breeze), because I thought I could get a better picture.

You can decide whether that was a good idea.

Then it was back to waiting. One old man walking about actually came and started talking to us, which was pretty interesting.

And then we called a fish!! Apparently, it's a very small 関アジ (seki aji). But we had to release it.

When we were done, it was back to the hotel for breakfast, then back to Fukuoka! But first, we made two stops. One was to a wine factory:

The wine part was only from a distance

I think walking around the place was more interesting than the factory. Although sadly, I couldn't go pick the grapes.

The view from the top of the hill was pretty impressive though. Although climbing it was hard work. And of course, we took a class shot there. I'm not sure how, but I managed to use a timer to take a not-that-terrible picture.

Obviously not the class shot. 

After the wine factory, we went to visit some sort of shrine, which is apparently really important? I'm not sure. But it was big, and there were a lot of torii.

 Since I'm Christian, I just wandered around snapping photos while everyone else did their thing.

All in all, it was a pretty fun trip. I never really talked to my senpai's before this, so actually interacting with them for three days was a bit scary, but fun. They were all way nicer than I expected. 

And now, I should go prepare for Day 2 of the Trade show thing. And other zemi related things...
