... Mr. Phillip O'Brien couldn't help but tell jokes and try to teach me some local Irish slang, which I can't pronounce for the life of me. There was plenty of time before my train would leave, so we took the long way through Dublin, allowing us to see the coast, the Royal Dublin Golf Club, the James Joyce House, part of the Guinness brewery, and the City Center.
