3月29日(土) バヌアツ 5日目 初めての休日
2008/03/28(Fri)
明日の休みの日の文は、今日金曜日ですが、ホテルではインターネットが使えないので、今週のまとめを日本語で書きます。
バヌアツの人たちは道で、行き交うと目を見て、ハローと声をかけてくれます。
中には、車の運転手が、微笑んで、声をかけてきたこともあります。
そこでこの頃は、自分が先にハローと声をかけるようになりました。
もちろんハローと返してくれます。15年海外の開発途上国を経験された調整員の方が、バヌアツには、物乞いをする人も売春婦もいない、こんな国は、はじめてだと話されていました。首都の目抜き通りである、日本の六本木といったところでも、裸足で歩いている人を良く見かけます。多くの人は、日本の夏に海で履くような薄いサンダルを履いています。この国には、道路の信号機がありません。ですから歩いている人は道を渡るのは、真剣で、よく車のこないのを確かめて渡ります。また道の悪さ加減にも驚きました。首都の繁華街の道路でも、穴だらけです。
どういうわけか、夜中の2時ぐらいから3時半ぐらいにかけて土砂降りの雨が降ります。その雨音は半端ではありません。鉄筋コンクリートのホテルに居ても不安になるほどでした。しかし朝になると雨が上がってくれるのは、不思議です。私は傘を持ってくるのを忘れたので、昼間降られたらと心配になりますがまだ小雨には降られましたが、大雨には遭っていません。繁華街まで歩いて5分のホテルには、まだ暗い朝3時くらいから、鶏が鳴きだします。コケコッコーのあの時の声です。近くに刑務所があるのですが、こちらでは、週末になると、囚人が、刑務所から出されるためか、こそ泥がよくあるそうです。こちらの人はカバを飲んで、その沈静作用で、静かになるそうですが、二週間ごとに支給される給料日である、第二、第四金曜日の夜は、少し高価なビールなどの酒を飲む若者がいて、騒ぎを起すことがあるそうです。
バヌアツは朝が早くて明るくなる5時ごろから人通りが始まります。
近くの中国人が経営する、小型スーパーは、5時半から、19時まで開いています。家探しで、これまで、4件見ましたが、勤め先の学校まで歩いて5分のアパートの2階の部屋を気に入りました。寝室2部屋、リビングルーム、トイレ、シャワー付きで、緑の木々に囲まれて大変静か、海辺まで歩いて15分のところにあり、月の家賃60,000バツですから日本円で、78,000円といったところです。事務所のセキュリティ専門家に見てもらおうかと考えています。

矢張り、夜中の2時頃に、大雨が降りましたが、朝は小雨でした。
小雨の中6時半にホテルを出て、近く歩き、スーパーでフランスパンと、牛乳、
ラップを買い、野菜マーケットではバナナを買って、ホテルに帰り西さんを訪ね、帰国される先輩SVの方の住まいを教えてもらいました。
丁度、デジカメとPCの接続ソフトを導入しているところで、一緒にインストールしました。
9時半ごろ、先輩SVの正田さんのアパートをお尋ねしました。
高台に建つ3階建で見晴らしが良く、風通しも良く、周囲は金網で守られており、2月16日に駒ケ根にバヌアツ事情の説明に来てくださった、先輩SVの野田さんが住んでおられた建物でした。駒ケ根では、これがバヌアツですんでいた家からみた海ですと見せていただいた写真と同じ素晴らしい風景がありました。家賃はJICAの住居手当てでは足りないようですが、これまで見た中では最高でした。なにより、防犯対策が良いと思いました。昼間は、金網の入り口の鍵は開けていますが、夜9時から、朝6時までは、鍵をかけ、その上ガードマンが、寝ずの番をするそうです。
あまりの眺めの素晴らしさに、お願いして、ベランダから写した写真を、家族にパソコンをお借りして、メールで送らせてもらいました。
TVでは、日本のNHK国際放送を無料で見れる設備になっていて、日本時間は2時間前の、リアルタイムのBSニュースを見ることができました。
正田さんには、持ち帰られるもの以外のものを譲っていただくようお願いしました。正田さんの部屋は同じアパートに住む、調整員の方が、移動する話しになっていて、私はその方の後に入る希望を伝えました。西さんも、同じ建物で開いている別の部屋に入られるようなので、JICA関係者3名が入ることになれば、常時接続のLANを3部屋で出来るようにしないかと、調整員の方が提案されていました。
それが出来て、もし常時接続のADSL約14,000 vtが1/3の負担ですめば助かります。昼食は、正田さんに冷やしそばと、ご自身で釣られた、マグロのおかずをいただきました。午後は、車で、ハイダウェイ島に渡る船着場に行きました。
大変素晴らしい景色の海辺でした。
そのあと、ビラで一番大きな、ボンマルシェというスーパーで買い物をしました。牛肉が安く買いたかったのですが、まだホテル暮らしで調理道具がないので、フランスパン、牛乳、ソーセージ、オレンジジュースを買いました。
そのあと、豪華客船も寄航することがあるポートビラ港を訪ねましたが、閑散としてほとんど人が居ないことが不思議でした。
そのあと、ラグーンリゾートで陽気な子供たちと写真をとりました。
そのあと、ゴルフ場に行きました。ゴルフ場では、先輩SVの川口さんと山田さんご夫妻、昨日春休みでついた高一のお嬢さんとバッタリお会いしました。
河口さんは、大学の先輩で、同じ工学部で、土木のご出身でした。当時、土木と私の建築工学は工学部の人気学科でした。町長を2期務めて、こちらに来られて1年目、そこのゴルフ会員になったので、一年間、何回プレーしても、ただで出来るそうです。いつもすいているので、くればすぐプレーが出来るそうです。しかも、年会費は15,000円と日本では考えられない安さなので、私も会員になってクラブを振り回し、青々とした芝生を歩きまわり汗を流すことを楽しみにしたいと思いました。福岡でのサラリーマン時代は、時々、コースを歩きましたが、それ以来、約30年ぶりになります。調整員の女性にも、ご夫婦でお会いしました。そこは、ゴルフだけでなく、テニス、乗馬もできるそうです。テニスラケットを日本に置いてきたのが、悔やまれました。
私は、必要なものは、現地調達を基本に考え、エアーパシフィックの限度35kgしか物を持ってきませんでした。しかし、碁石と碁盤、45年前のままの裏ラバーの卓球ラケットは持ってきました。今でもちゃんとはじくから、感心します。
夕食は、近くの高級中華料亭で、ワンタンスープ、青菜の油いため、牛肉と玉葱のカレー風炒め、チャーハン、地元のタスカビール2本を堪能し、正田さんから多くのアドバイスをお聞きできて、幸せでした。
こちらは、毎晩星空で、北斗七星は良く見えます。南十字星、天の川などの場所を教えていただきました。ホテルまで、送っていただき、シャワーを浴びて、Tシャツ下着を洗濯して、9時、日誌を書いてベッドに入りました。
外は突然大雨が降り始めました。
今日は、はっちゃんの18才の誕生日、おめでとう。コメント見ていますからこれからもお願いします。
大学生活をエンジョイして、友達を作ってください。

3月26日(水) バヌアツ2日目 夜中大雨、朝雨あがる。オリエンテーション、所長講話、銀行口座開設
2008/03/26(Wed)
I waked up at 1:30.
It start raining so heavily that I couldn't hear anything at all except big rain sounds at roof and about 30 minutes it stopped raining.
The chicken's chatter started at 3:30 am.
It begins to become bright at 5.
I wrote a diary and took a shower and went to JICA office on foot at 8 and updated my blog and sent some e-mails.
The orientation was held by the coordinator from 9 to 10:45.
There were 47 persons of JICA VANUATU at the beginning of this month.. Japanese was 42 persons and JOCV
were 21 persons and SV were 7 persons and other staff. I’m not counted in this because I came this country just yesterday. I learned that the housing expenses were reduced about 10 percent if there were furniture.
And when borrowing the room in the amount of money containing electric cost, the gas bill, and water service cost, expenses of a house rent is reduced about 10 to 20%.. I’m thinking that the rent budget is 865 dollars but if I rent with furniture, the expense was 778.5 dollars.
After orientation we walked to downtown and asked young native ladies about nice restaurant near there and found the French restaurant. We found a big table with 7 chairs in which one couple was already there ,so I asked them to use with and sat . I got a tuna pizza and a beer and had chat with each other and a couple,
One couple was the French and the Chilean.
He said that she was only one Chilean who was lived in Vanuatu.
Yasuma talked with the beautiful Chilean like Sofia Loren in Spanish and Yoshihida talked with her husband in French and I sometime talked with both in English. They were the French teacher in Vanuatu.
In the afternoon we went to the bank and made a bank account.
I made doller and Vatu accounts and the fee was 200 dollers and 5000 vatu. And I came back JICA's office and sent e-mails with pictures to my colleague.
In the evening we three SV went to the soup nuudles shop and had a dinner and it was 800 vatu.
I bought one French bread, one littler of milk, a canned of tuna, one kilograms of sugar and it was 480 vatu at Chinese's store .
I came back Hibiscus motel at 7:00 and showered and washed my underwear and wrote diary and went to bed at 10 .

How to get a discount on apples
I walked to Komagane freeway station near here on Sunday afternoon.
I found some apples and the list price was 500 yen.
I said “I like these apples but I can’t afford them,so please give me a discount ”.
And the clerk replied “We are very strict. We can’t discount it, really.
But I'll discount 50 yen, especially for you.”
So I said, “I decided to get them for 400 yen,ok?”
And he said “What can you do? I’m ok with that.”
And I paid with a 500 coin and said “Coul’d I get some change?”
And I got ten ten-yen coins.
Finally,he said “Thank you very much. See you again.”
And I knew that the shop closed at 4:00 pm.
So I recommend you if you want to get apples you should go before 4:00 pm.
Please try to get a discount on apples.
