税関は、customs ですね。 この話は、英語のタイトルならば、 「入国審査」Passport Control か、Immigration でいきます！
This is a true story about myself.. It was my first trip alone abroad, to Australia from Japan. Entering another country made me feel very nervous. I practiced silently in my head those oral conversations while I was in line at the customs in Brisbane airport. -May I see your passport, please? -Here you are. -What's the purpose of your visit? -It's sightseeing. Ok, ok, I can do it. I can do it, oh...it's my turn.
I showed my passport to the immigration officer who had a thick mustache and big arms. Suddenly, the word that I never expected hit my head!
"It's not you."
He looked at my picture of my passport and said again,
"IT'S NOT YOU."
I said, "It's me, ME! This picture is 8 years old. I lost my weight, my hair has grown and I'm wearing the contact lenses now." But he moved his head, "NO" and called another officer on the phone. The woman in blue jacket came and signed me to follow her.
To be continued... あ、でも次回は、イスイスさん家の話だよ。 英文、疲れたね。。ありがとう読んでくれて。
ふつうのオバサンです。よろしくね。 英語で何かするのが好き。読む書く話す聞く見る。人の考えを聞くのが好き。Talking with people all over the world is fun and you can learn something new from them, telling what you know to them as well. That's the reason I can't stop learning English.
