Today I have been in Hiroshima for two weeks; everything still feels very new. Last weekend I was finally able to visit the Peace Memorial Park, and it was beautiful. I feel like I could spend every morning there, relaxing with a cup of coffee. Lisa helped me buy a bicycle this week and I love it. I always complained at home that the city wasn’t bike friendly, but that is no longer a problem here in Hiroshima.
I’m hoping to be able to visit a few shrines, and hiking trails in the next couple of weeks before all the leaves are gone. I enjoy the city, but I think its important to recharge with nature on the weekends. I’m really struggling with the language barrier, I find it embarrassing when I’m not able to respond to anyone. All I can do on my own is shop, and ride the transit, but for now that’s all I need.
