This hotel is located beside a closed down pub and you buzz in to get access to the hotel. This was a bit weird, but it was lovely on the inside. My room was newly renovated. It was clean and nice. The staff were lovely. They showed me where to go for breakfast in the pub in the morning and down to the beer garden at night. The is lots of noise from the beer garden, but as long as you know that before you go it's not that bad.

The walk to Victoria Station all laden down with back packs was quite enjoyable in the morning rain. We walked around the train station a few times trying to find track 15 to 18 with much dismay. We went up escalators and down, but after the third time asking for help we found it behind the escalators. And these folks speak English....(maybe we are hearing in the wrong language). The English airport security is a bit different from the states; they ...
... we headed into town to check out some traditional Irish pubs and listen to a little music. Whilst strolling around there were buskers and I met Catherine (Mary's daughter) who was still working. The last pub we went into I bought a drink and we watched the musicians playing - oh so squishy - but toe tapping stuff .... It was after midnight and we left to turn in for the night.

Today i spend the day walking the shopping streets of Dublin. One of the first streets i come across is Temple Bar. It is full of pubs, all filled to capacity. So many men in kilts. Must be something to do with Ireland vs Scotland soccer game being played later today.
So what i have seen so far is a quaint little city with lots of non english speaking tourists. Its not the cleanest city, with litter on ...
I'm excited to enjoy the small Dublin things this next week that I know I am going to miss so much. From O'Briens egg breakfast sandwiches, to seeing all the street performers on Grafton street, to Centra sandwiches, all the pubs and clubs (Diceys, Coppers, and Flannery's forever have my heart), and all the people that I have met here. What better way to end an amazing semester than in my second home's city.
Today was the day I was looking forward to. We got to play cricket today at the Marylebone Cricket Club. We got there a bit early so we got the chance to sit and watch a professional team practice. It is simply amazing how fast and hard they throw that tiny little rubber ball. When we finally got to start playing I quickly figured out that throwing that little ball was much harder than I thought it would be. The person throwing the ball is called the "bowler" and I am not a good ...
