Trip to Otsuchi: Day 2, continued

Sachiko AbeWhen I left the temple I saw Sachiko riding her bicycle. She took me to Milky’s house, the Kotobuki Hotel, Cat’s Eye, Satoshi’s grandfather’s shop, the Jazz Bar and Su-san’s house. We also saw Fumitaka’s parent’s dentist office.

I took many pictures and left a friendship bracelet at Milky’s house and Su-san’s house. The Jazz bar is a pile of rubble now. So is the Cat’s Eye and Su-san and Milky’s house.

Sachiko was singing and humming as we walked through town, almost absentmindedly..like a defense mechanism. At one point she just broke down. I see that they try very hard to hold in their emotions and put on a brave face but at times what is just under the surface breaks through. It is very sad.
