Alright, guys. I'm hanging out with SonicLlama, watching Frisky Dingo (it's a cartoon, and no, it's not that type of cartoon), and this is my last evening in Japan. Tomorrow I take the Shinkansen up to Tokyo, hop on my airplane, and head home. It's been a great trip! SonicLlama and The Tomorrow Lady have been awesome, wonderful hosts.
So today, my second day of exploring by myself, I decided to go visit Hiroshima. Hiroshima is depressing. I suspect every tourist who visits leaves with some sort of insightful, heartfelt introspection that they share with those who're interested. But not me. I'm not that kind of guy. I have, however, attached a picture of the Atomic Bomb Dome, which is a sort of starkly effective testimonial to the power of the atom.
Less stereotypically, I scooted on down to Miyajima, which has a nifty Buddhist shrine right up next to the waterfront. Famously, there is a torii in the water, which I have taken a picture of, for your edification. I have also learned that, even if you can get strangers to take a picture of you in front of a famous object (pantomiming is your friend!), that is no guarantee of picture quality. So, few pictures of me. Sorry.
Alright, time to pack and go home. Toodles!
