I had mentioned photos, but forgot to add them.
The Memorial itself is moving. Lots of school children were visiting at the same time as me. This is where I first learned that I am going to “Star” in many people’s photos as the “Middle-age day white woman”. I don’t love selfies, but you cannot turn down the kids (is this what Taylor Swift experiences???”)
Something that I found interesting about the Memorial is that many world leaders have planted trees in Ghandi’s honor in the garden surrounding the Memorial. These two stood out - Ho ChiMinh and Nicolas Ceausescu. Ghandi advocated for non-violence, but these two practiced the opposite. Strange contrast.
