Mitsu chan and Marie chan went to see to get some fishes. They did skin diving, a few meter deep in the ocean and, they checked each secret points where Mitsu chan knows as fish's home, stabbed fishes with harpoons.
海のめぐみたち。 Those are treasures hunted in the ocean.
エビを握るまりえちゃん。生き物と生きるのに、慣れている。かっこいい。 Marie with a big shrimp. She doesn't get afraid of touching living creatures. Cool.
かわはぎ？ これは、とれたその日にお刺身でカルパッチョになりました。 KAWAHAGI. File fish(?). This was become a "carpaccio".
手前が、かさご。アクアパッツアに。奥が、ぐれ。石釜でハーブと塩こしょうでグリルに。 Front one is KASAGO, a rock fish, and the behind one is GURE (sorry don't know it's English name), we've grilled with herbs, salt and pepper.
When the evening comes, each of us starts to prepare for dinner. Dinner time is always 7 'o clock, and one prepares for chopsticks, the other brings water, dishes, putting rice on the plates. We eat something with our fingers, and adults would enjoy checking today's drinks (glass of beer or wine) if it taste good or not. And we all wait for Tae chan's call - "Ok, let's eat!".
今日はシチュー。ストーブを丸く囲んでのお夕飯です。 Today's stew. We surrounded the stove and had dinner.
We forgot to eat oysters when they were hunted, thus we grilled them. They smelled like condensed sea. Very yummy..
Eating is definitely one of the best pleasure in our life. And here at KAIYU, we can see where our foods came from. We don't need to use our imagination to guess where their hometown is, but we can actually see their life and we kill them in order to eat them. The cycle of kill and eat is very short, and very clear.
Before going to the ocean, Mitsu chan asked me. I cannot really tell if I like it or not. I just, haven't had any experience to "kill" something for eating. I feel a bit scary when I cook fishes by myself, touching clammy body made me shudder sometimes.
Eating is killing. And when I live in my town, I never "see" the process of killing to eating, which is gently hidden from our daily life, stored in black box. Maybe it's better for me to see that process. I assume I will never be able to kill mammals for eating, but I think I should go hunting fishes with Mitsu chan while I'm staying here.
