I went with another outdoor life professor and a group of students to pick
grapes at a nearby winery.I don’t know
if this is a class or community service or just volunteer work, but it’s
something the students do.Ted went last
year before I arrived in Hokkaido and it was fun, so we did it this year.
They had scissors and gloves to use. We cut the bunches of grapes and put them in the
plastic containers, moving down the rows.It was kind of cloudy at first but the sun came out and it was a nice
afternoon. There are always new things to do and see in Hokkaido.
