Downtown Hiroshima, pt 2
Last night--erh, Tuesday night--James, his girlfriend and I went out to dinner & Drinks. I crashed at his hotel, and then we spent the rest of yesterday shopping.
There is a LOT to do downtown, and I'm still not very sure of my way around, but I'm working on it.
We spent pretty much all day at this mall called Parko, and walking around Honduri street. It's a covered street with shops lining either side.
I didn't buy much. Thankfully none of the clothes I liked fit, because everything I tried on was over $100. Even shirts. How can people afford to dress around here? I did get a prepaid cell phone. I'd tried getting one on my first day in town, but the lady told me I needed a resident alien card. James & I went to a different store, and he was able to explain to the girl there that I was only in Japan for the month. Whatever he said, it worked, and about $100 later I was the proud owner of a bright yellow Vodafone.
Tonight, we went out again, and I barely made the last train back. Its a good thing I don't have to be at work until 9pm tonight!
