Do you miss the retro style of answering the phone? Yubz is connecting to your mobile phone and you can talk BIG, or go home :D It can used it wireless via Bluetooth. From my point of view it would be handy to have it on the mountain sometimes. If I am in the powder and wanting to use the phone or answer a call it is such a pain in the ... to take the phone out of the pocket. In order to do that I need to take my gloves off too.

Today's snowboarding lesson- How to turn:
Let it snow!
Friday, November 14, 2008
Si cum spuneam, trecand pe langa bazinul cu apa calda in care se afla pestii, nu am ezitat si de data asta sa nu le fac o vizita. Am primit un ceas care indica 13 minute, timp in care sa ma pot "imprietenii" cu pestii. Mi- am asezat picioarele in apa, si imediat ce au venit pestii, as fii vrut ca prosopul care il aveam in mana pentru a- mi sterge picioarele sa mi- l fii bagat in gura ca sa nu rad cu gura pana la urechi. O senzatie destul de rara, sa simti multi pestisori ca te "pupa" pe picioare. Din cate am inteles trateaza multe boli ale pielii, hranindu- se cu bacteriile si pielea moarta de pe picioare.
Au fost 13 minute de rasete innabusite. Am trecut pe langa acelasi mic bazin si saptamana trecuta, pestii erau mari insa nu pot spune acelasi lucru si despre numarul lor. Oare ce s- o fi intamplat intre timp?

It is not that expensive and I think it is very handy considering that it is the size of a pen. Personally, I still need to learn the "analog" way and then I would like to have a device like this to help me when I need it.

For almost 3 years I`ve been using the board that made me love powder and Hakkoda. Lately I`ve been checking the internet for THE powder snowboards and looked at several boards like: T. Rice Banana Hammock , Burton Supermodel, Burton Fish , Gentem and a few others. I was about to buy the Banana Hammock to enjoy the powder 100%- but then I thought what will I do on the slopes.
Yesterday, the weather in Aomori changed and today was really cold. It won` t be long until the snow will be here. :) Where will you snowboard this year?

We are a volunteer association in Aomori interested in organising events where people all over the world can join us and share ideas, happenings, talent and cultural aspects.
The participants coming from countries like China, Phillipines, Japan, Korea, Malaisia, Russia, Romania, Thailand, Vietnam made their own speech in Japanese, presenting something relevant about their own country. During the break romanian cheese and snacks were served( I wish we could have offered wine too).
After the speech, talented singers from Russia, Phillipines, America, Australia and Japan gathered in a piano, guitar, violin and beautiful voices concert.
This day was a special day for me for two reasons- ①I would have never thought that on my 27th birthday ②I will be dancing on traditional romanian songs in Japan.
At the moment we are preparing for the second event that our volunteer association will organise on December the 14th. " Christmas around the world" is what we would like to present in this second edition( probably this will be the name of the event) and hopefully foreigners living in Aomori( and other prefectures) will make Christmas in Aomori be felt like it is in their own countries.
If YOU are a foreigner living in Aomori( Japan) and would like to be present at this event as a guest or collaborator don` t hesitate to contact me.
Let` s spend an unforgettable Christmas in Aomori!

I have been away from this blog for a long time so, soon, if not today, I will make an effort to write a review of this summer. I have been taking tons of pictures, most of them not that good- still learning how to use the camera.
I WILL BE BACK!

It was hard finding the spot where there were, but I managed to find them after a few calls. As soon as I arrived I started putting the meat on the already prepared fire.
Having a barbecue in a long while has been a really good stress relief.
It wasn` t that hot but some us took advantage of the early summer.
Arond 5 p.m. we decided to return home, finished eating the red pepper and packed up. On the way to Hiranai I stopped to take this picure. A little foggy but the calm and relaxing colors were reflecting that day` s "colors" .
The next day I` ve been working around the house, making a locker, watering the flowers, cleaning after my mess.
Yesterday I went shopping and could` t go home before investing in my heart- Canon.
After a long over night charge, today, I made myself some time to test my lens. Around the house and most of the time near Aomori` s Ferry port. Got there just before Natyan left for Hakodate.
Bay Bridge was covering half of Hakkouda.
While cleaning the water in my son`s turtle tank, this guy stood on the table watching me all the time...
The water in the vase is getting blue after putting the roses in.
Tommorow the party starts again! :D

"Where are you Mihai? Still sleeping?"
"Oh, NO, what`s the time?
" It`s time to GO!" ( sorry about that)
I met them after 12 minutes and we were on our 45 minutes drive to Iwaki mountain.
This is how Iwaki was like at 16:00. I wish that this weather continued all day long.
I had the pleasure to sit in the back of the car and enjoy the road to Hirosaki and back.
Watching ザ・ドリフターズ all the way we arrived pretty soon on at Ajigasawa` s Ski resort parking, where we met one of our friends, and after going round the mountain taking 69 curves, near the top of Iwaki.
Some of us were jumping with joy
Some of us were thinking about the cherry blossom
But the reality was this, and we were on our way to the top.
The weather was rainy, -2 degrees, wind of speed of 18-20m/s. No way for the lifts to move. So we started preparing to climb.
We hiked for about an hour between bushes, trees and climbing rocks.
Finally on the top. With the strong wing blowing with power the snowflakes on our faces made it hard to set the camera and take this picture.
And we started climbing round the mountain.
Ready to go down the mountain. The clouds are still surrounding us, making the mountain hard to see. But not for long...
We were soon out of the clouds and enjoying the view.
In this video I took you can see how fast the clouds are moving.
This is where we came from- you can see in the far left the car in the parking lot.
An avalache is showing some signs. From what we`ve heard it was like that since the beginning of april. Hope it stays the same until it melts.
Yotin going first to prepare the camera.
Today`s snowboarders were:
And Yotin in the middle
Before arriving in the parking lot it started to rain heavily, but it felt so warm and so nice. Just like a spring shower after a cold winter.
Some of us were still having fun until the very end of the slope covered with snow.
After going up the mountain to take Mos` s car we headed for Agigasawa again and Hirosaki. Couldn`t let the beautiful scenery pass without immortalizing a few sceneries. You can smell the spring without looking at the beautiful intense green that is appearing here and there.
Today has been better than I have been expecting it to be. All week I have been checkin the weather forecast and for for my disapponting Sunday was always near the rain mark. On top of the mountain it snowed almost all the time and while descending the sun was appearing now and then. Good timing!
Mos san was so kind to make a video selection of that day. He even caught on me on camera when I am having a big fall sliding. Too much speed
Mos and Yotin wrote on their japanese blog about that day. Click on name to visit.
See you next year Iwaki!
