They must have had 500 iPads all free to use. It was a tiring day though. I got into Dublin around 10:30 am.
It took awhile to get through customs and take a bus from the airport. This is where I am staying for a couple days.
It's a guesthouse in an old building. I sort of feel like I am in an Agatha Christie story. When I leave I turn in my key and hen pick it up when I come back. It's simple but comfortable with some old world styling. I like it so far.
My daughter loves skulls, so when I saw these in a window I had to get the picture for her. Sarah, no I am not bringing you one of these.
Dublin has a lot of Georgian architecture that I just loved, all sort of colorful doors are a treat for the eyes.
Little bits of inspiration strike me, so I stop with my iPhone and take some pictures. I loved this streetlight. Being in the big icy again is such a change of pace. There are people everywhere and it can be overwhelming at times. I am not used to so many people smoking, I rarely see that at home. Another thing I have not seen anyone who fit the stereotype of an Irish person. You know red hair and freckles. I've heard so many different languages in one day that I can't distinguish them anymore.there appears to be a big Asian population along with African, Arabic and Eastern European. A melting pot of sorts.
Another thing I've noticed that I first encountered in England ten years ago. It's easy to be In a big city at all hours. Haven't felt vulnerable at all. I wouldn't say that about big cities I the US.
There is this big statue of some Irish orator I think its Connolly, but at the bottom are all these angels. I wish I had some editing software loaded on my iPad so I could lighten theses up.
They are all really beautiful.
I may have to take more pictures at a better time a day. I love how you can be walking along and here is this magnificent statue just out of the blue.
This bridge just appeared. I don't even know what river it was but I thought it was pretty.
That's about all for today. Time to get some rest. Tomorrow I am going on a tour to Newgrange.
