      ... listen to their stories for hours; we all come from very different walks of life. We have different childhoods, different customs, and different experiences (people in Brazil don't put their eggs OR milk in the fridge! oh and Irish milk is GREAT). I have made friends from Rio, Brazil; Quebec, Canada; many from the United States; Italy; Belgium; Germany, and the list could probably go on. We have started to do potucks once a week, which is fun to see what everyone ...

      After I regained my composure, we headed ...

      ... to decipher what the hell everyone was saying. I did notice that people do speak as if they are telling you a story when they drink it really is funny when they are trying to tell you such a basic thing as if it is the most amazing story ever! Definitely a fun and interesting night out! I will admit I will have to go back to Birr soon even in the dark the architecture and the castles and churches were just amazing. I will want some photos ...

      ... pub that had just a few other locals in it. It was a load of craic there. The locals were so friendly and funny and when they found out one of us was celebrating a birthday, they bought us a round of shots. I have absolutely no clue what they put in those shots, but they were really good. One thing that was cool about this pub is that one of the first songs I heard there was ...
