ボラカイで年越しを

今、ボラカイに来ている。

今年は初のボラカイでの年越し。年末の休みで、島は国内外からの観光客で溢れ返っている。いつもの宿泊先が満員で困っていた僕を、日本人の移住ファミリーが、しかもこの時期に受け入れてくれた。もうけっこういい年齢なのに、世界中どこに行っても居候癖が治らない。でも、家族的な雰囲気に囲まれて過ごす年末年始は、とても心落ち着く。

24時間ほど後、この世界的なビーチリゾートで世界中から集まった観光客たちと、2009年のスタートを共有する。年越しの瞬間は、仲良しのダイビングショップのパーティーに、居候先の家族と一緒に参加する予定。4キロのホワイトビーチに立ち並ぶリゾートホテルでは、競ってビーチに花火を打ち上げるのだそうだ。ボラカイは観光地で、基本的に非日常的な雰囲気なのに、年末年始でそれがさらに非日常化するのは面白い。

ところで、多分これが今年最後のエントリーです。2008年、僕と関わりのある全ての方々には、大変お世話になりました。すばらしい人たちとの関係性や出会いが、この1年をとても刺激的で満ち足りたものにしてくれました。ありがとうございました。

みなさんの年越しが、幸福に満ち溢れたものでありますように。よいお年を。

2年前に年末をボラカイで過ごしたことがありますが…年末年始とは贅沢な…

しかし、Azumaさんのフィールドワークにとっても、とても貴重な経験にもなるのだろうなあ(まあ、別に、研究はいったんわきに置いて単純にエンジョイしてもいいと思いますけれど、というか、そういう風に分ける必要もないですかね…)と思いました。いいなあ。

ともあれ、新年の祝福を祈りつつ。

年末ですか?では花火は見てないんですね。フィリピンの爆竹ニューイヤーは怖くて苦手なのですが、こちらは楽しみです。

もちろんボラカイには、調査できていますよ(笑)。

よいお年を!

Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your content seem to be running off the screen in Safari. I'm not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I thought I'd post to let you know. The design and style look great though! Hope you get the problem solved soon. Thanks

After I initially left a comment I seem to have clicked on the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now each time a comment is added I receive 4 emails with the same comment. Is there a way you are able to remove me from that service? Appreciate it!

The other day, while I was at work, my cousin stole my apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a thirty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now broken and she has 83 views. I know this is completely off topic but I had to share it with someone!

Whoa! This blog looks exactly like my old one! It's on a completely different topic but it has pretty much the same layout and design. Superb choice of colors!
