This week Dave and I arrived in the lovely city of Hiroshima. The weather is a lot colder here than in Okinawa, but at least that means it feels more like Christmas!
On Friday we went to visit the Peace Park and Museum. I wrote my Master's dissertation about the ethics of the use of the atomic bomb, so I have wanted to visit these places for a long time.
It was a really poignant, moving and thought-provoking experience, and a powerful reminder of the horrors of nuclear war. It's also amazing to see how well the city has recovered.
We are really looking forward to exploring more of Hiroshima next week ^_^
