Day 91  インド・ タージマハール Taj Mahal, India



6月19日午前、世界遺産のタージマハールを撮影するため気合をいれてホテルを出た。タージマハール東門の手前、薬局があった。私は蚊よけスプレーを買っておこうと店に入った。
I went out from my hotel in the morning on June 19th to take photos of Taj Mahal, the World Heritage. Just before the East Gate of Taj Mahal, there was a drug store. I entered there to get mosquito repellent.


「蚊よけスプレーはあるか?」
I asked a shopkeeper, “Do you sell mosquito repellent?”


「蚊よけスプレーはない。しかし、もっといいものがある。」
The shopkeeper replied, “No we don’t. But we have much better one for you.”


といって店員が出してきたのが、何と、ハゲ薬であった。
Believe or not, he showed me Hair Loss Cream (cream to improve hair density and to prevent hair lose).

s14P6190052.JPG


おのれ~。私は目を疑った。蚊よけスプレーを買いに来た客にハゲ薬を薦めるとは、何という無礼者。時代がちがえば一刀両断である。あと300年早ければ、この男の命はなかったであろう。
Holly smoke! I could not believe it. What kind of shopkeeper is he to try to sell such hair loss cream to a customer who came to buy mosquito repellent. If it was Samurai era, he was finished due to his disrespectfull behavior by Samurai sword. If it was 300 yeas earlier, his life could be ended in a second.


しかし、あまりの意表さに、つい、
However, because his offering was so unexpected one from what I was looking for, I asked almost unconsciously:-


「本当に効くのか?」
“Is this really effective?”


と聞いてしまった。すると男は、
Then the shopkeeper answered strongly,


「100%保証する」
“100% guarantee”


と言い切った。インド商人恐るべしである。再び意表をつかれた形となった私だったが、そこは気を取り直し、
He was a typical Indian merchant, I must say. I was again hit by his unexpected answer. But I tried to overcome and asked again.


「なにぃ、100%? ならば、どれくらいで毛が生えてくるのか?」
“What? 100%? You can’t be serious. Then how long will it take to see my new hair?”


と、鋭い質問を浴びせた。すると男、ひるまず、
I gave him a perceptive question. However, without hesitation, he replied.


「1ヶ月」
"1 month!"


とまたしても言い切った。
He said very straightly again.


「なにぃ、たったの1ヶ月? おのれ~、もし生えてこなかったら、警察呼ぶぞ。もう一度聞くが、それは本当か?」
“What? Only 1 month? Holly smoke! Are you joking? OK, if no hair will come out after 1 month, I sue you to the police. OK? I ask you again. Are you sure?”


「100%保証する」
“I guarantee 100%.”


男は頑として言い張った。私は欲しかった蚊よけスプレーのことなど完全に忘れ、ハゲ薬の値段を聞いていた。
He clearly answered. Myself, I completely forget about mosquito repellent and instead I was asking him the price of the Hair Loss Cream.


「150ルピー」
“150 Rupees”


日本円でわずか450円だった。100%保証付がたったの450円である。しかもたったの1ヶ月で毛が生えてくるのである。うまく行けば、7月19日ころ、ちょうど中国のシルクロードあたりで、私は髪ふさふさになっているのである。日本に帰るころなど、ほとんど別人であろう。日本の皆さんが驚く様子が目に浮かんだ。妻などオーマイゴー!と叫ぶであろう。
It was only about 450 Japanese Yen. 100% guarantee product was only 450 yen. Not only that it takes only 1 month before seeing my new hair on my forehead. That mean, I will have a lot of hair around July 19th while I will be traveling in Silk Road in China. When I will return to Japan, I will be a totally different man having a lot of hair. I could even see people in Japan who could get surprised seeing my new hair. My wife would even say, “Oh my god!”.


私はバックから財布を取り出していた。と、それを見ていたもう一人の店員、
I was already picking up my wallet from my bag. Then another shopkeeper who was watching me said,


「こんなものもありますよ」
“we have this kind of product as well.”


s14P6190051.JPG


と言い、「髪が抜けなくなるコンディショナー」なるものを持ってきた。お前らは手品師か、と思ってしまったが、これも買うしかなかった。ガンジス河はヒンズー教徒の聖地だが、タージマハールの脇にあるこの店は頭が薄い人間にとっての聖地のようであった。
She showed me a conditioner to prevent hair to drop. “Are you guys magicians or something?”, I thought. I could not do anything but buying this product, too. The River Ganga is a secret holly place for Hindu people, but his small drug store just next to Taj Mahal was as if a secret holly place for those who have very little hair like me.


そうなるとがぜん思い出すのが、日ごろお世話になっている海外フィールドワーク・ゼミ講師のI先生・S先生であった。お二人にもお土産として本品を数本購入すべきかどうか数秒迷ったが、荷物が重くなるので、「ま、次の機会に」ということで申し訳ないが諦めた。
Then I should remember 2 lecturers of Fieldwork course in Tokyo, Mr. I and Mr. S. I wondered if I should buy those products for them as souvenirs or not for a sec, but to avoid my backpack to get more weight, I said to myself, “next time”, and I gave up to get for them.


さて、話は前後するが、4月のベトナム。
Well, going backward to April in Vietnam.


私の後ろを歩いていた女子学生の佑木が突然、
Yuki, one of my student, who was walking behind of me suddenly asked me,


「先生、傷つくことを言ってもいいですか?」
“Do you mind if I say something you may not like to hear or you may get hurt?”


と切り出した。藪から棒にそんなことを言う奴があるかと思い、傷つくのは嫌だったが、一応話だけは聞くことにした。
I did not know what was going on and I also did not like to be hurt. But anyway, I asked her what was about.


すると彼女の曰く、
She said,


「先生は去年のフィールドワークで体重が5キロ減ったそうですけど、今年は髪の毛が減ったみたいですね。」
“You said you lost 5 kg of your weight last year after the fieldwork trip, but this time you are losing your hair this year.”


傷ついた。私はとても傷ついた。どいつもこいつも、おのれ~、であった。時代が違えばこやつもベトナムでその短い人生を終えていたことであろう。
I was hurt. Deeply hurt. If it was Samurai era again, she ended her short life in Vietnam.


さらに、思い起こせば、昨年の一期生の紺野・徳田という二人組。この二人、冗談混じりとは言え、以前こんな暴言をはいた。
Furthermore, I remember what Konno and Tokuda, my former students, said as a joke. They said,


「海外フィールドワークの先生になる条件は髪の毛が薄いことですか?」
“Is it a condition to have little hair to become a fieldwork lecturer?”


前述のI先生・S先生、そして私とくれば、これはもうほとんどそれが絶対条件と思われても仕方がないくらいだが、この二人組も言語道断、一刀両断でも決しておかしくない失言であろう。
It is kind of natural for the students to misunderstand that little hair is a absolute condition to become a lecturer for our fieldwork course if they see Mr. I, Mr. S, and myself who have all little hair….. However, still if it was Samurai era, Konno and Tokuda could finish their lives there.


ああ、それにしても。
Anyway,


世界最高の建築美を誇るタージマハール。その30mくらい脇で、私は上述のような極めて現実的かつ切実なやりとりをしていたのでした。情けない。。。
I was dealing with such stupid hair loss cream business just 30 meters besides Taj Mahal, the most beautiful architecture in the world. Such a shame. Oh god….

Before ending, I know it's such a shame, but I’d like to put my photos as a record of my hair as of June 19th, 2007. I can’t wait to see my new hair after 1 month from now!

というわけで、明日6月20日朝、ここアグラを列車で発ち、次の目的地ジョドプールという町全体が青のペンキで塗られているという不思議なところに移動します。12時間の列車旅です。

私はリアップを発売当初から使い続けています。
おかげで髪は生えてこないものの、ぬけづらくはなったような気がします。
子供たちは私のこの姿を見て、
「無駄なテイコウー」と笑っています。
一ヵ月後が楽しみです。
効果てき面とあれば、すべての仕事を投げ打って、インドに飛びます。

先生!!お久しぶりのコメントです!!
仕事が忙しくてなかなかゆっくりブログを見ることができませんでした。

さすが、世界遺産を前に髪の毛についてのやりとりをしていらっしゃるとは、
もうインドを完全に自分のものにしたようですね!
このブログのアップから二日たっているようですが順調ですか?

お体に気をつけて、これからも素敵な旅を☆

2007年を生きていてよかったです。
ベトナムで切腹はごめんですからね。

先生の髪の様子は愛をもって私もみまもりますよ。

My point is, if you want to get quality boots, I would say bear paws. If you want to fit in, AND keep your feet warm, but wet, get UGGs. BUT, if you want your feet WARM BUT NOT WET, keep GOOD CARE OF THEM! you HAVE to, or they will be gone in 1 year. UGG ブーツ 人気 http://350zcsl.com/saleugg.php

Some variations of ugg style boots have also been made from kangaroo fur and leather.[18] There are also synthetic boots. Although derided as "fake" by some in the industry,[19] their lower price made them appealing to large retail chains such as Myer. アグムートンブーツ http://www.e-thermal.jp/kutsuugg.php?boots=15

UGG Boots Outlet Online Very Convenient アグ ムートンブーツ http://mrkigo.sakura.ne.jp/ugg2013.php?boots=15

Ugg boots often have a synthetic sole, although this is not universal. They are available in a range of different colours as both slipon and laceup varieties, and they are produced by a number of manufacturers. The natural insulative properties of sheepskin gives thermostatic properties to the boots: the thick fleecy fibers on the inner part of the boots allow air to circulate and keep the feet at body temperature.[16] This means that ugg boots can be worn without socks even in relatively cold weather.

like several others created by Uggs can be found in half dimensions too. Really pure sheep epidermis is unquestionably put on have the ability to produce every one of these " footwear " and causeing this to be why you will find and therefore practical and opportune. All the ugg products are hands crafted works UGG boots outlet store online aren't beyondThe ciudad wasn't always so weing to UGGs Boots Uk formerly. Within the sixties, UGG boots outlet store online shoes developed right into a popular alternative forpetitive audiences, who applied the shoes to have their feet warm immediately after escaping . of within the surf.

i would get northface. even though you don want the knock stuff, you could still get a nice pair of boots, that are very similar, and work even better. you know? i have a pair of uggs, and a northface jacket. i am not a big fan of my boots, but i am absolutely in love with my northface jacket! plus it lasts longer!!! if you are ordering online and don know what size to get, you could go to one of your stores, in your area, who carries northface, and try some on there. so you know what size you would order online!You REALLY don want knock offs? You are the type of person who makes me SO SO SO SO MAD because I KNOW from the info, you are 1318 you trying to fit in. If everybody wore the target knock off brand of north face sweaters, you would too. Lame , stop trying to fit in. Ok, i understand you want Uggs and all, but let me tell you something. UGGs are made for DRY, COLD, WINTERS. Where I live, we get a lot of snow, and 9/10 of girls don care about the snow or keeping their feet warm, toasty, and dry, they want to fit in. But that not the case. Australia has no snow, so they made boots for THEIR weather, not the whole worlds. They are from SHEEPSKIN, very thin. They ARE expensive, however, because the inside is VERY furry warm I must say. But they are not for the snow or water. Believe this or not, but UGGs are made of sheepskin, and that is not tough at all against precipitation, HOWEVER, Bearpaws are made from COW SKIN, which holds out rain or snow better. I had my old Bearpaws for 2 years, and they really kept the water and melting snow out, HONESTLY. Once in a while, my socks got a bit wet, but very rarely. Remember, cow skin is tougher than sheep skin. You must be assuming the inside is cow too LOL but no actually, the inside is bear, I GUESSING. I THINK so, I might be wrong, but i think it also sheepskin because i searched it up on Google everybody says so. MANY people think they are FAKE sheepskin but they are fittingin wannabes who wear UGGs. Bearpaws cost 79.99 originally. Fake sheepskin is the 12.0020.00 boots that you get at payless. They are warm though. Althought, after 2 years, the back part of the shoe, on the inside, at the bottom, a patch of fur came off just like my UGG boots. After my Bearpaws wrote out, I got a pair of UGGs to see for myself the specialness of them. Like I said, I live in an area of snow. 1. The inside, backside, bottom of the shoe, a patch of fur came off, in one year. My bearpaws lasted two. 2. Everybody I came home from school, with my socks wet. 3. As you walk with them, the back falls onto the rubber (or whatever is it) bottom, it doesn look flattering. 4. The entire boot has wet spots and some white stuff on it.

Ugg boots often have a synthetic sole, although this is not universal. They are available in a range of different colours as both slipon and laceup varieties, and they are produced by a number of manufacturers. The natural insulative properties of sheepskin gives thermostatic properties to the boots: the thick fleecy fibers on the inner part of the boots allow air to circulate and keep the feet at body temperature.[16] This means that ugg boots can be worn without socks even in relatively cold weather.
