On a ferry back to Hiroshima city from a small island nearby:
We need to get to my grandparents place where we will be staying tonight and tomorrow night.
They would like me to arrive by 7.
It’s 5 right now and it takes more than two hours to make it there…
Well, we miraculously made it (almost) on time.
About 20 min after 7 but no major issues.
All that’s left to do now is to take a shower and go to sleep.
But before that, a recollection of today.
After arriving at Hiroshima and looking for a place to put our luggage (after discovering that the coin lockers wouldn’t fit our luggage we found a luggage check in place) we went to the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum and Atomic Dome (pictured above).
I had been to it before but wanted the foreigner friends who came along to visit it.
While we didn’t have much time to see everything in the museum (especially since it was crowded) I hope some of the stuff got across.
I particularly like the recounts and pictures drawn by survivors because the stories are real and are perfect examples of the phrase “fact is stranger than fiction” in that it surpasses what you could imagine.
The last thing for today was dinner at my grandparent’s house.
Dinner of crab, other good food, beer, and sake.
Good dinner, just before going to sleep.
