hiroshima, mind boggling
heart wrenching
i promised i would not cry
i lied

i was doing so well
the feelings were strong, but not overwhelming
then there were two young girls singing
they were down below the peace park on the river bank
i don't understand japanese
but i understood what they were singing about

i am stopping now, i'm too wrung out to cry again right now




we got a really nice hotel for a very good price here in hiroshima
very impressive for the money, close to the rail station, the memorial park, and nice business district
my friend, who had us sleeping on the floor in an unheated house, for the same money, thinks i did pretty well

no time for pix, but i checked out some from one day in kyoto and there are some dandies
for a guy who is really uncomfortable with a camera in his hand, i think i did well
i'm sure y'all will let me know
looking forward to sharing, i get a lot of pleasure seeing the adventures of my people

there isn't much time
i looked at one day in kyoto on the train to hiroshima
i really want to take a little time to explain a little, there are some good shots
what i may do is just upload and give the password to those who just want to see
thanks for your interest

i had a lot of fun seeing them full screen

i exhausted my fully charged brand new battery at hiroshima peace park today
the place is absolutely amazing, everyone should have it on the bucket list, and sooner rather than later
just an incredible place, no pictures can do it justice

i am really loving japan and will have to come back for a longer visit

I don't believe you're actually there, hence the close up pictures of doors taken in some Japanese retail centre in the US and no panoramic shots

Hey, here's a picture of me on the moon.

So far your journey seems life changing Steve,I spent two weeks in Tokyo and I was amazed by the respect and cleanliness the Japanese have for all.
And how about those vending machines,huh Steve?

dude, i absolutely adore the japanese people
almost as much as the vending machines

maybe not life changing, but surely satisfying and a dream come true
there will be another trip to japan in the future
