Class, Visit Federal Way Courthouse, Police Department and the City Hall
We spent the
morning class learning how to use American coins as well as practicing some
pronunciation. Kara, who used
to host students from our college in the past, came to join
us that morning.
In the afternoon, we visited the city hall of Federal Way
with some of our host families. We first visited the Federal Way
Municipal Courts, which is in the same building as the city hall.
We met Judge Larson there, and asked him some questions.
Judge Larson was so kind that he let us put on a gown for a
judge and take pictures with him. We had never been
to a courthouse in Japan, so it was a very interesting
experience to look around.
We next visited
the police department, which is also located in the same building as the
city hall of Federal Way. We had Officer Hanson as our tour
guide, and he showed us around and answered our questions about the
police work in the area. It was the very first time to look
around in the police station, which was very interesting.
visited the city hall and had a chance
to meet Mayor Jim Ferrell, who seemed really busy. We had a
female staff show us around and explain about the
city of Federal Way. It was another busy day for us.
