New roads, new adventures

Like all great things, even a Jamboree must come to an end. This is the last post I'll write while at the Jamboree - my next post will be from Tokyo.
It's been an amazing journey, this camp, with many ups and downs. I've met a ton of new friends from all over the world, learned so much about the Scout movement and opportunities within it - like work at a permanent mini-Jamboree in Switzerland - experienced new cultures... The list is endless. 
I swapped my Swedish Scout shirt (darn green one) for a Taiwanese shirt (the one I'm wearing in the picture)! It's a super comfy shirt, much better suited to the humid hotness that is the Japanese summer.
Some of my new - and old - friends here at the Jamboree. Definitely the thing I'll miss the most!
With my mother and brother coming to visit me, we went into town and found a small sushi place - one of the kinds of sushi was raw mini-squids!
At our work with the birdwatching, they had horseshoe crabs - I thought they looked like Facehuggers from the Alien movie...

Tomorrow is the closing cermony for the Jamboree; in three day's time, my friends and I will be on our way up Mt Fuji. So while this adventure - this wonderful, stressful Jamboree adventure - is coming to and end, another one is about to start. And I'm going to enjoy every minute of it.
