This couple picked us up off the Hiroshima on-ramp at 8:24am, just as we were setting our bags down to wait. Olga had told horror stories of 45 minute waits for rides out of Hiroshima, but we didn't wait even 30 seconds! They were going all the way to Fukuoka, and we had them drop us off at Koga Service Area at 11:15. We were knitting in the car and the woman exclaimed, "What? You have that in America too?" We had to explain that, yes, knitting is not just a Japanese hobby. They were fun, and we got to listen to old Japanese elevator music the entire trip.
