living in a rural area makes it very boring to live. All I do is play games,
that is until I found Santharia. Santharia was a way for me to keep busy,
and to escape the everyday troubles that sprang from life.
It is such an accomplishment that people from all around the world can come
together to help develop this fantasy world.
My mother is
Japanese. We go to Japan every year and visit my
grandparents, they live right below Mt. Fuji in a city named Fujinomiya.
Their time is short so that's
why I visit them so frequently. They are the nicest people ever, and I can't wait to see them this year. A festival
helps in celebration. Celebrating for what? Well I'm not sure, but just
being in Japan makes you want to party. The festival is held once a year,
and it is in honor of the Fuji God (though I do not believe in the God).
Sake (Japanese Beer) is thrown and tossed along the streets, great
platforms are lifted from the ground by selected people with men and women
on top tossing the sake. A cauldron of fire is in the middle of the
platform. As many as 100 of these roam the streets the night of the
The final act of the festival is to walk down a river (the people holding
the platform), while others watch from a bridge or from the side. All of
the platforms march down the river splashing water, throwing sake, and
chanting a certain call of the Fuji God. Great
fun it is, I trully can not wait to do it again.
On another note... When I was 6 years old I was riding my bicycle one day
and ran into a boat (don't ask me why) and broke my nose. When I was 8 my
friend grabed my leg and I was wipped back. My arm fell onto the pavement
Well since that age I have not broken anything so maybe luck has struck
me. Other than those things in my life, nothing really exciting ever
happened. So, I am waiting... and waiting...
