世界童军模拟-台湾花莲 - The days at Changua (part 5)

the days at Changua



i am proud i represented my country as the only delegate on the XII World Scout Moot held in Hualien-Taiwan. i made it to Taiwan due to a scholarship offered to the Peru Scout Asociation (ASP) by the Taroko Operation. Now, on the previous post about this we left the action :) Estoy orgulloso de haber representado a mi país como su único delegado en la XII Asamblea Mundial Rover, llevada a cabo en Hualien-Taiwán. Pude participar gracias a una beca ofrecida a la Asociación de Scouts del Perú por la Operación Taroko. Ahora, en el post anterior de este tema dejamos la acción cuando mi mamá me dijo por teléfono que mi pasaporte había expirado.

2004 Changua, Taiwan
XII World Scout Moot
EC4 Welcome Gate


A nice idea for the Moot was to have "Expedition Centers", so people could get to know different parts of Taiwan... i picked up randomly the number 4 because its logo had a big Buda on it, and certainly i didn't care much because i was very excited just of being part of the Moot. So, after Linkou, Changua was on the schedule and i had to get the bus. After the rush i had while getting the bus heading to Changua (i forgot my peruvian posters on the dorm... and i recalled it when i arrived to the bus, so i went back running, and it was soooo faaaar awaaaaay... and so demanding to get through the stairs... and it was soooo hooooot!!!). Luckly, i arrive back to the bus on time :P Then, after some minutes we get to the next place: Ming Dao University. There was this very nice gate you see on the picture above. To see where the city, have fun with the map below:



Changua is on the mid-west part of Taiwan



We got some presents just because we got into the Expedition Center #4 (aka "EC4"): a small bag (excellent to carry bottles of water, the camera and a t-shirt) and the cap people are wearing around on the next picture. The 1st activity that i remember (it's been some years, please understand that memory is fragile) is that the country delegates went to print the palm of the hand on cement to leave a memorial on the university. It was a great idea considering i was the only peruvian... and so, the delegate myself :P my friend Anna Katarina (the one i met just arrived to the airport) helped me with the pictures... and i have to be very humble to admit i look like i just print my hands on the Walk of Fame #win ...come on, it does look important :)

XII World Scout Moot
Hand Printing Event

At nights we got the usual getherings, and every team had to make some kind of performance: sing a song, some sketch. Hum... now seems to be a good time to introduce you my very nice team. After dividing the Moot into Expeditions Centers, we got the International Teams... and mine was the # 444 (freaking nice, hu?). Among the members there were Andy from Norway, Mia from Sweden, Nicole and Yogurt [金絲卷]  from Taiwán, and me... from Perú, of course :) There were more, but it's very sad that the language barrier was so high that time :(

XII World Scout Moot
Night Event

We also took a walk in the streets, checked a botanical garden (my biologist friends Renpeli+Patty and JaviC must had been amazed there... but i studied engineering, i was not so excited), went to a Budah Monument that was imponent and where i took the picture u can see below. Now i think it was kind of unpolite to deploy my flag because nowone else is doing so and i was just 1 peruvian... everyone had the right to have their flag (well, at least a lesson for the future). Those monuments were very interesting, never saw faith in Budah before and the sanctuaries were impressive :)

Buda Statue

One day we got into the university lake to do some kayaking... or whatever this is called. Later that day we did some team work and had a nice and great time with the challenges. All those days we had chopsticks for meals... and i got some practice on it, but getting a stake with them was hard... so as trying to get it cut. Well, back to the kayaking... my success was to remain up :) i had a lot of fun with my team mates and Anna Katarina, Eva, andy, Jenny, Abbas...


2004 Changua, Taiwan
Canoing at Ming Dao University
(if u are confussed: yeah, the univ campus got a lake on it!)


I recall, specially, the 1st night there. During the day we got to dance some latin music thanks to the Mexican Contingent, having a great time with all the people on the EC4. Before and after i made some friends just saying hi and getting to chat to the people around... and at night we had a nice welcome ceremony with a taiwanese event fashion where we saw local designes, a powerful drum-show along with a dragon dance over some poles... amazing! there were also some dancing and finally... fireworks. But not just common fireworks. I saw the Disney ones... and these had nothing to envy them! We all were so amazed by them that i can short our thoughts under Anna Katarinna comment: "WOW, i can't believe what i just saw... and we are just... scouts!". It was amazing, incredible... and that first night ended with the following letters:



Fireworks Finally... simply: "amazing"

Go check the World Organization of the Scout Movement and check for some evens, if you want...
But if you are a scout, i really really tell you: go to an international activity, but be responsible with the documents u need to handle ;) It made me very sad not to be able to go to Kenya for the last Moot :( Puedes ver la página de la Organización Mundial del Movimiento Scout y revisar algunos eventos, si quieres... pero si eres scout, te digo... y te lo digo muy bien: ve a una actividad internacional, y se cuidadoso con los documentos que manejes ;) Me dio mucha pena no poder ir a Kenya para el último Moot :(

La Señora que bajaba

Yo bajaba con tranquilidad por la cuadra. Y digo "bajaba" porque Moquegua no es una ciudad plana y esta era una de tantas calles con pendiente. Bueno... yo bajaba con tranquilidad por la cuadra cuando escucho que alguien llamaba por detrás: "Señor... ¡¡Señor!!". Como ahora tengo barba y me dicen más "Señor" que "joven" pensé que me pasaban la voz a mí, por lo que volteo a ver qué sucedía... y se trataba de una señora que bajaba presurosamente la calle en busca de un Señor en aparente estado de ebriedad que se encontraba a unos metros detrás de mí. Cuando lo alcanzó lo tomó del hombro y le dijo, con ese lindo y tierno acento de señora de la sierra: "Señor, se olvió su vuelto de 50 centavos".



I was walking down the block calmly . I say "down" because Moquegua is not a flat city and this was one of many sloping streets. Well ... I was walking down the block calmly when I hear a call from behind: "Sir ... Sir!". Because now I have a beard i am more often called "Sir" instead of "boy", so I thought i was being called, so I turned to see what happened ... and it was a lady who hurried down the street in search of a man, apparently drunk, who was a few meters behind me. When she reached him, she touched his shoulder and said, with that cute and tender accent from the women of the peruvian highlands: "Sir, you forgot your change of 50 cents".
