SLJ - D4A1

The weather is looking hot in Tokyo, Japan.

If I was to create my own airline I would call it Royals Flights after the Marist rugby team that I play for.  The colours I have chosen are yellow and blue, like my favourite Super Rugby team, The Highlanders.

I've never been on a plane before in my life.  I am a little bit nervous, but mostly excited.  

I watched a safety video by some of my favourite sports team, the All Blacks, to learn a few things about flying safety. 

1. When you see the seatbelt sign, make it click.  

2. Turn all gadgets to flight mode.

3. Listen to the flight crew.

Bonus thing I learnt, Israel Dagg is a pretty good rapper.

Should Bullfighting in Spain be Banned?

I think that bullfighting in Spain SHOULD be banned for two reasons.

  1. It is cruel to the bulls.  The bulls are tortured days before the bullfight.  They are stabbed with an estocada during the fight to kill it.
  2. It is unsafe for the matadors.  They could get hurt if the bull gets his horns in to him.  If the matador trips or falls over the bull could trample him and crush his body.
I am lucky that I am not a matador nor a bull.

Hi Dad

Guess what!  I am going on holiday to Japan!  Don't worry Mum is coming too.  We won't be gone too long.

I have always wanted to visit Disneyland and see real live Sumo Wrestling.  Mum wants to see some of the places from the Fast and the Furious movie, Tokyo Drift and eat REAL sushi.

Check out my blog to keep updated on what we are doing and learning.

Love you, Jacob

PS Remember to feed the cat.
