|View from my hotel room. That's the Peace|
Memorial just past the bridge and then
the A-bomb Dome to the back right.
|It's a Street Car!|
First, the Hiroshima Peace Memorial.
(Note to my "fans" 😂: I've done all the cities in this blog before, so not as many pictures from things I've already done. Unless Clayton was being silly. Or he was teaching me something new on the ofttimes mysterious camera. Or we almost died. Or it was something new.)
After we toured the Museum for a while, we decided to head back to the rooms for a bit to recover from the oppressive heat and let the rain storm that was moving in go on past us so we could walk through the rest of the park without getting drenched. Well, we walked across the road and just as we made it to the other side we first heard (not sure I've ever heard lightening BEFORE I saw the flash) then we felt -- like, vibrations in the skin and the hairs on my arms raising up -- the bolt of lightening that struck the NHK building that was less than 100 yards from us. 😳 Uh, I guess when the weather app shows lightening flashing all over your screen you should definitely take shelter!!
|Should we 'run a little'...|
Uh, it's like 112 degrees, I think not.
When it's so darn hot outside you take every opportunity to cool off....misty fans, hand held fans, and cool bottles of water.
