We meet again in 6 months, in Japan! / また日本で!

-From Midori

We have now left Nepal. It was a very interesting and inspiring trip, which we will have to take some time to register. From a village in Ghorka to the bustling of Kathmandu, Nepal gave me many diverse memories. In 6 months’ time, the musicians will gather again in Japan, and by that time, we would have all internalized our experiences. There would then be much opportunity to discuss our experiences amongst ourselves and to the people and the children we would meet as we travel around Japan.

As the year 2016  is coming to a close, it was definitely a highlight of the entire year for me to have traveled to Nepal, and I am looking forward to how all the experiences will come alight. Happy 2017!

 

私たちはICEPネパール訪問を終え、帰途に着きました。ふり返って見ればこの旅行は言うまでもなく魂を揺さぶり、忘れがちな人間の素朴な感情を思い起こしてくれるものでした。

ゴルカの集落から活気のある首都カトマンズへの旅程の至る所でそれぞれの表現で私たちに思い出をくれました。六ヶ月後には日本で全員が一同に再会しますが、その頃にはきっとこの貴重な経験を、日本の訪問先で人々や子供たちに話せるくらいに心の整理が出来ていることでしょう。

2016年も暮れようとしています。私の今年の「ハイライト」のネパール訪問が明日からの2017年、将来にどのように生かされていくのでしょうか?来年もよき年でありますように。
