Enjoying (?) another cup of coffee (?) at the hostel this morning. It’s raining in Dublin, and about 45 degrees. We have three days left including today. Dublin is as different from Kinvara or Kilronan as Chicago is from Charleston or Lerna.

Yesterday we split into groups to explore three attractions of the city. My group went to the Kilmainham Gaol, Ireland’s most famous and most filmed defunct prison, and then to Trinity College to see the campus, the Long Room and the Book of Kells. And finally, Christ Church Cathedral.

Lots more to do today! Everyone is alive and well.

If nothing else, I will make it to Starbucks today…
