Went to Londonderry which is west North Ireland. Walked around and had coffee in a small back street arcade. The town itself is very pretty and the people seem to be generally friendly and happy. On the other side of it though when walking back to the car park noticed a few groups (gangs) hanging around so there could be a rough side to the city as well. Mum felt it as well. ...
... only celebrate the battle of William and James (William catholic a Dutch king, married James's (Protestant) daughter), but also their Heroes of other wars, also WW1. They march the routes that the returning Heroes marched, this was part of the prob with the troubles as the routes traversed the catholic areas. How she can remember as a teenager, the 20mtr deep craters left in the street from the car bombs. Cars where seats were removed and explosives were packed into 44gal drums. ...
... the riots of the 70's, 80's and 90's. Walking around here you still feel the edge of the Troubles still there. I'm not saying that there were guns in the streets and riots taking place, but the signs of "You are now entering Free Derry" and "Brits Go Home" are still there and very visible.

... We took Alwyn and Jean out for Dinner, lets say they took us since we had no idea where to go and we went to an Irish Pub called the Thatch. Good food, very enjoyable and then we paid. Home for coffee and then pack up for tomorrow. Early start tomorrow for the airport at Dublin and onto Bristol where we are staying with Joyce and Charles (brother of our friend Carolyn Runciman in Auckland). So farewell Northern Ireland and Hello ...
... up at 5am) Was really shocked at how happy I was/am to be home, never expected to feel like that at all. I know its early days and will probably seem like a bit of a novelty but right now I feel that coming home was definately the right decision. Looking forward to seeing everyone - just wish I had presents to give. Though, if i had money for presents, I would have been able to afford to stay in Australia! So im a happy bunny right now, and can't wait to see you all soon ...
