Blind Succor Day - 盲人でもサッカー

On the final day of echolocation and perceptual mobility training, Daniel told us, Juan Adam and me, to go outside and play some ball game.

So, here we come! we are at the same Scherer park, getting ready to play succor!

エコーロケーションと五感を使って行動する訓練の最終日の課題はと言うと・・・ 「お外で元気にボールを蹴っておいで」と、ダニエル。

... but, we are all blind. How we play succor?

The answer is, the ball is wrapped with a plastic bag, so it makes noise when rolling and kicking.
... What if the ball stopped moving?
Juan says, we must remember where the noise stopped.

Okay, let's play!

As I am getting used to play succor, I started playing more aggressively.
I never thought a blind person like me can enjoy playing succor!

It is such a wonderful experience for the blind to find out we can play ball games. World Access for the Blind hosts ballgame sessions for blind people, and I highly recommend it, if there is a chance to participate.
ダニエルが主宰している、「World Access for the Blind」では、定期的に、盲人のためのサッカーやバスケットボールなどの体験会を催しているようです。

On our way back to Daniel's home, we stopped by Ralph's and grabbed some coke.
For that, Juan told me to lead our way, finding the entrance, find a customer service booth and asked for bottles of regular coke and coke zero.

This becomes the final task given by Juan. , my echolocation and perceptual mobility training is finished.
