... with no signs of rain
Airports took a while, but we finally got to sunny Dublin! Really really cold, but no rain. I can't believe how many people are in tshirts. So glad I brought my coat and gloves. Very windy. We spent today walking around Dublin. The whole downtown area is pretty central. We visited Trinity college, a huge stone university right in the middle of the city. Then there are the shopping areas like Grafton street, and then there's Temple Bar, a pub and entertainment district. Met up with K's old roomate and went to a pub. At two seperate restaurants I ate the best potatoes I've ever eaten in my life!! Y invited us over to her place for a home cooked irish meal. She lives in a really nice modern appartment tucked away behind a main street. Saw a Tim Hortons today!! There are burger kings and subway restaurants everwhere. But also a whole variety of Irish pubs and neat looking stores.
