Where in the world is...

For those of you who, like myself, are bad at geography, I've posted this Map of Japan so that you could see where Hiroshima is located.

Hello Gulliver

Posted by Picasa
Just for fun, I thought I'd post some pictures showing how things here are built shorter for the Japanese. In case you can't tell from the pictures, in the top left we are on a bus that is about two inches shorter than Matt, so his neck is bent so that the back of his head is against the roof. The two trucks shown are used to deliver snacks and beverages to a nearby amusement park. The cab is so small that Matt could not drive it even if he wanted to (he does). The lower right picture shows how small the seats are on the older buses. Seats for taller people are available on the newer buses.
