My dad just told me about someone he met at the refugee detention centre he has been visiting whose little brother died on the way to Australia. He had to throw him overboard into the sea. I learned about refugees in highschool but why do I feel like I didn’t, really? I shudder at the thought of having to do that to my little brother. The refugees who do make it to Australia are faced with detention when they should be cared for. It makes me feel disgusted at the injustice caused by humans.
When I go to Istanbul, I’m going to take about 1000000 photos and post each of them on my blog, like a travel diary, and so when I return I can look back on them and cry my eyes out
Dreams in Blue
Each year these blossoming blue fields attract thousands of tourists. Hitachi Park is located in the Ibaraki Prefecture on Honsyu in Japan. Its a beautiful spectacle during the flowering of the nemophila. Nemophilas are annual flowers. The word is a combination of the Greek words “nemos” (small forest) and “phileo” (love). The Japanese word “hitachi” translates to dawn. Taken together: “small forest love in dawn.” A blue heaven on Earth.
