Our room was 6 feet by 10 feet and if the mats had been rolled out they would have touched wall to wall. The sun was superheating the room through the frosted barred window to over 40C despite having the air conditioner "running". The western room the children were given on the other side of the building was not as hot but still far too warm for them to be comfortable in. Again the beds were wall to wall. We saw one of the newly remodelled rooms that one of our party was given which was spacious and more what was expected but as it was the only one available, we checked out and left. The part of town was also not so convenient with no restaurants and a tram ride required to the Pace Memorial Park and main parts of the town.

I circled my room several times, looked out the window at the moving objects, rubbed my forehead, walked around some more, laid in my ...

... likes to dwell on over breakfast. While the ionising radiation was more sinister, most victims were simply incinerated or cooked to a point incompatible with recovery. One thought, uncomfortably, of Belinda's 90-second pizzas. In one gallery, a volunteer guide and survivor of the bomb was patiently introducing himself to random visitors one at a time. He showed his father's watch and belt buckle - all ...
