Hiroshima

Today we're in Hiroshima, at the Peace Memorial Park. Sarah and the
kids are standing in front of the "A-Bomb Dome", the only remaining
building left exactly as it was just after the bomb.

We started out the day with a short tour of the highlights by an
English-speaking resident of Hiroshima. In the days before arriving,
we had been explaining to Ellie the significance of Hiroshima, and
said she could ask the tour guide any questions she had. Yesterday,
Ellie announced that she first wanted to ask the tour guide why the
Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor! We suggested that was probably a
question for another museum....
