My day in Hiroshima.. or more like Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park.
The history is present. Long park and the river banks full of school children. And it's a hot day. So hot I have to try to find a cover fast from the sun glowing above. It's a flat and big park. After seeing the park and the museum and other sites around the children start to run after me to do their 'talk to a foreigner' -schoolwork in English. I do more than 10 of these interviews and trying to avoid the children running after me with their hands stretched out I escape Hiroshima.
I leave Hiroshima with my backpack and pockets full of paper cranes. The story behind the origami cranes is that if you fold 1000 of them you will be granted a wish. One sad but famous story I learned about the cranes in the museum was Sadako Sasaki's. Read it from Wikipedia.
After I got back to Miyajimaguchi, I went straight to Miyajima to clear my head. I had Hiroshima blues.
