My Spring Holiday on Tomatly Island
Sunday, March 23

I went with my family to a country named Vegetonia to visit Tomatly Island, which is located to the southwest of the main island of Vegetonia. The fastest way to get to Tomatly is to take an airplane from Poteno, but we took a ferry because it was much cheaper. It started to rain when we got to the island, so we visited an art museum and a castle. Then, we enjoyed a hot spring bath. In the evening, our dinner was delicious. Everything was so fresh!

Luckily, the next morning was sunny. We rented bicycles and had fun cycling along the coast. After that, we went fishing on the beach but we didn’t catch anything. Oh well, maybe next time! In the evening, we saw a beautiful sunset and later on, lots of stars.

On the last day, we took a private taxi tour and the driver took us to many interesting places around the island. She also told us a lot about the nature and culture of the island. We had a great holiday, and as a result, I’ve become more interested in the beauty and culture of small islands.

March of the Machines
Nick Rightfield

After graduating from university in Toronto, I started working for a trading company. This means I have to live and work in various cities. My first post was in New York, a city famous for its office buildings, stores, and nightlife. In my free time, I loved to walk around and search for stores selling interesting items. Even into the night, I would wander from store to store.

Then after two years, I moved to Tokyo. My first impression of Tokyo was that it is a busy city very similar to New York. However, on the first day when I took a night-time walk down the streets of Shinjuku, I noticed a difference. Among the crowds of workers and shoppers, I found rows of brightly-lit vending machines giving off a candy-colored light. In New York, most vending machines are located in office buildings or subway stations. But I never imagined lines of vending machines—standing like soldiers on almost every street —selling coffee, juice, and even noodles 24 hours a day.

As I stood in Shinjuku, I thought about Vancouver, where I was born and raised. To me it was a great city, but having experienced city life in New York and Tokyo, I have to admit how little I knew back in Vancouver. As I was thinking about my life so far, it began to rain. I was about to run to a convenience store when I noticed an umbrella vending machine. Saved! Then I thought perhaps as technology improves, we will be able to buy everything from machines. Will vending machines replace convenience stores? Will machines replace salespeople like me? I didn’t sleep well that night. Was it jet lag or something else?
