... lovely broad roads with room for street trees and landscaping. The Peace Bouelvard has a wonderful night lighting display and there are garden plots of flowers and memorials lining the street. It is the nicest city we have seen so far.
We saw Japanese rockabilly followers giving a dance display (seemed very out of context). Another oddity is the Japanese love of vending machines. They are everywhere and you can even buy a beer from them, ...
... the story of what happened the day the bomb was dropped. It also describes the effects radiation had on the human body including a harrowing story of an unborn child developing a condition where the brain doesn't develop to full size, meaning the sufferer cannot care for themselves for their whole lives.

... survivors talking about their own experience on the day was very moving, with most of them relating the horror of the time and the sadness that has influenced their lives since.
It is a triumph to the people of Hiroshima that they have resurrected their city out of the ashes and have devoted themselves to peace. On the cenotaph memorial are the words "Let all the souts here rest in peace for we shall never repeat the evil".
Quite a day!
