My last full day in Hiroshima, 2015

It's interesting that I sat near this girls day display of dolls every day and never appreciated it until now:

Barefoot Gen Volume 9.....ABCC  atomic bomb casualty commission (now RERF - radiation effects research foundation) is featured critically and prominently throughout Barefoot Gen and is the place that first brought us here in 2008 - where David worked and we lived and I felt like an imposter

Charcoal, YES CHARCOAL, cake and green tea cream with chestnuts = oh yum!
