So Far In Ireland...
Hello from Dublin!
I've been thinking of all the things I want to tell you about, and everything that is so very cool and show you the pictures that I've taken...But if I try and remember all of these things, or download any pictures, you aren't going to get a blog post tonight.
So no pictures, and a mash of impressions and things from Dublin so far....
Cobblestones. I love them. Roads with Cobblestones are MUCH cooler than roads without. My mission in Dublin seems to be to trip over as many of them as I can. I have kind of embraced and accepted this, and am going for a serious high score. Did great today! Hit a lampost too once, but that's championship stuff and I can't do it every time. I hear when the Cobblestones get wet it makes it much more interesting. No rain so far to test this, but one can hope.
I had tea in a Crypt today. We didn't set out to do this, but the fact that it happened is just one more example of why Ireland is such a magic place. At any moment you could end up in a crypt with a nice cup of tea.
I love old churches. Very powerful places. I love the feeling of them, the history of them, and the magic of them. The look of them, with towers you can climb all the way to the top of and look out over Dublin, very beautiful. Very powerful places. I love it that they have crypts under them where you can get a nice cup of tea.
I got to have beans on toast for breakfast yesterday. Now I know I was pretty out of it, but I loved beans on toast. These ones anyway. And I love it that you can get real tea just anywhere. GOOD real tea. That comes with milk.
I went to a place called "Hell" for Pizza last night. Good pizza in Hell. Very spooky place it was. Which brings me to another thing, I have been loving how all of the shops, places to eat, anywhere you look, is all spooky here, bats, skulls, spiders, cobwebs, all of it. It seriously only dawned on me today that the Irish were not in fact just a generally Spooky people (Like myself) but rather, er, Halloween is coming. Go figure.
I love the people here. Haven't met any bad ones. Everyone is so very friendly, and nice to me. Except for the crossing the street bit. No one will hold my hand, they keep saying I can DO this on my own and I am NOT going to get squashed like a bug with cars coming from the wrong way and to grow up and just run when everyone else does and I will be fine.
One can hope.
Tomorrow, I think my Spirit Guide (Whose name is Annabell) is taking me to mummies, a graveyard, another church, more tea, more Things That Have Been Dug Up, and a Knitting Club (which I don't believe is a Euphemism, I think it's, you know, yarn and all. I get to learn to KNIT, which is cool) And more walking.
Which is cool, because I am sure that there are some I've missed.
I love it here.
Love and Ireland,
