Some Like It Hot

So, today was the Maeganeku Harii Race at Maeganeku Fish Port – such fun but hot fun.

Crews race up and down the harbor. People hang out drinking Orion beer, eating Ikkasumi, which is black squid soup. This soup stains your mouth for about a week and your shirt for much longer.

It is very hot and Friday. This means rushing down from the university to support our horribly be-muscled athletes, in the heat of the mid-day sun. The moment I get out of the car, 3 litres of sweat spurt out of my body onto my clothing. My clothing darkens.

OIST ventures forth with 2 teams, both of which perform with courage and elegance.
