I had been participating with six students in the digging lotus root tournament of annual Nishijima Irrigation Pond. It is competed for length of edible part of the lotus root which diameter of lotus root is more than about 3cm. Because NIT Akashi College team had won in the past few years, we participated by also fired up this year. We had a plan to use the sticky rice of tournament prize for making rice cake with Brazilian student in exchange program next January. After digging the lotus root for 1 hour, it is exhausted. I was muscle soreness on the next day.
We were lose. Winning record is 124cm, to prize had to more than 115cm. An increasing number of participants, the level has gone up.
Since we were hungry, bought takeaway the bowls using the drive-through with Rear Car on the way home.
