Extra! Extra! Read all about it! Superwoman swoops into Ishinomaki to feed starving volunteers.
So working for Peace Boat has been a dirty, sweaty mess but enjoyable and rewarding at the same time. One of the challenging things with the experience is that all volunteers are to provide their own food for the week in addition to bringing back all of their garbage. Lunch and dinners therefore are typically Cup Noodles, canned tuna, and other relatively nonperishable foods.
Will and I had plan to “rough” it and eat Powerbars and tuna packets all week. But……then…..from thin air….Superwoman, herself, appeared at our worksite on the first night armed with two boxes of supplies. She brought breaded pork cutlets (katsu), fancy ramen sets, a portable stove, utensils etc. I was SO excited for the fresh, hot katstu and even MORE so for the surprise visit from Superwoman.
You wouldn’t believe it, but she made another appearance on the third day…..with even MORE supplies. This time with fresh bananas, oranges, and bread PLUS a cooler full of juice, iced coffee, lemon water, and hotdogs! Will, our groups, and I have been able to enjoy fresh food and drink these past few days all thanks to the generosity and amazingness of Superwoman, dear friend of mine. Thank you.
