A journal entry from: Japan Thailand Nov Dec 09

I visited Nagasaki briefly years ago, but there was so much more to see I was happy to be able to return. The early history of the place is amazing - as a trade port and multi-cultural centre. I was impressed by the pot made by Chinese monks to feed thousands of local people when the rice crop failed in 1680. The Atomic Bomb Museum was moving. It was good to see loads of school kids there.
