My wife Sudha and I had a wonderful holiday in Japan in October. During our visit to Hiroshima, we met some schoolgirls on a local train.
They were coming back home after a hard day’s work at school preparing for their exams. We did not get their contact information but wanted to wish them — and all students across Japan — the best of luck with their exams and a happy and successful 2018.
We wanted to share our good feelings and wonderful experience in Hiroshima and all the friendly people we met during our visit.
