Day 11: Hiroshima, Japan

Spent an hour at the peace memorial and other than that chained to my hotel room writing my book.

Needless to say, to visit Hiroshima now is special given N Korea situation. The Peace Garden is OK, but the museum inside is moving (and disturbing). It was interesting to be snuggled in with all Japanese people watching a little film about when America dropped the atomic bomb on Hiroshima.

Outside it all there’s a "Flame of Peace" that won’t be extinguished until every last nuclear weapon on earth is destroyed. Sadly, that day seems farther away than ever.
