{public bath, soft minds, italy}

So the last (?) remaining public bath in Nakano started demolition last week. There had been a notice posted for a few weeks saying it was about to go, and then all of a sudden it was in pieces. They seem not to care that they destroyed some beautiful roof tiling, the main wood beams, and the like in the process, just smashing it down with a large bulldozer. I’ve grabbed what I consider some dramatic shots from mid-destruction this weekend, along with one of those ceiling tiles which will make a nice bookend. Photos soon.

While taking the photos, I passed by a woman who was wearing a shirt: “United States Of America Music Softens Our Minds”. Brilliant. Just wish I could have snapped a shot of that.

And with each passing minute I get closer to Italy :)
