Delivered to Sendai (福祉車輛仙台へ)

leave a comment »

The welfare car was delivered to AAR office in Sendai on 16th of April by ferry from Tomakomai to Akita, and 300km drive from Akita to Sendai. Cherry blossom was in full bloom in Sendai. At AAR office we taught the staff how to use the equipment for a  lift. Everyday they deliver some goods to various shelters and schools. We bought quite a lot of food in Sapporo, including fresh spinich to fill up the van. Actually the load was very heavy so 80km was the maximum speed on the freeway. There was no vacancy in the hotel or ryokan in Sendai, so we had to drive 30 km away to spend the night.

苫小牧から秋田までフェリーで、その後300kmは高速道路をドライブして仙台に福祉車輛を届けました。支援物資が重く、高速でも80kmが最高速度でした。16日夕方に「難民を助ける会」事務所に到着し、物資を降ろし、スタッフにリフトの扱い方を伝授しました。

仙台は桜が満開でした。ホテルは支援者で満杯で、20km離れたひなびた一軒宿に泊まりました。
