... name the A-Bomb Dome (I'm just going got call it ABD for short). Apparently the bomb went of close to just above it and everything within a couple of kilometres was obliterated except for the ABD. The ABD is falling apart and currently being propped up by support beams, it looks like an old, run down, disused building (which it is) and if you didn't know the history behind it you probably wouldn't have noticed it.

... speed pursuit across the square before I finished my food and could bin the remains and blend into the crowd. Should have been there longer. But a beautiful trip. Arriving back at Hiroshima, via a train chat with Mohammed from Tajikistan, over here to study harvest management, I figured I might as well use my sightseeing bus pass.
