Anyway we arrived at the hostel at 12.05 so got in on time, didn't fancy spending the nite on the street as it was freezing!!
Stayed in a hostel which was straight across the road from the Institute of Art Museum, not being into this sort of thing i reluctantly went for a visit.... and i can honestly say it was the coolest museum ever - it had loads of stuff on the American Indians and loads of pre war family stuff as well as more modern art, it was so good think we ended up spending a few hours here!
(Joe) Our reason for goin to minn
I tried to call then but we forgot that people here rarely answer there home phones for fear of being greeted with the most tenacious telesales man in Indian!! We did leave a message the next day and Paul (Mc Ginty) called us back and we arranged to meet for dinner that evening at the hard rock cafe!! So that we did with Paul, Sue and Stacey, unfortunately Justin and Kate could not make it, though im sure we'll see them both as soon as is possible!! It was great to see them again after so long and we really enjoyed the limited time we had!!
(Hi guys hope your happy with the photo as the whole of ireland will now be glaring at it, we had a great night and with a bit of luck we'll meet somewhere on the globe sometime soon!!!!)
After we left the Hard Rock, Joe and I went across the road to an Irish pub were there was live music, Joe even got up on stage to sing a song - which of course the crowd loved!!
It was good craic and after a bit of banter with the locals we headed back to our hostel.
On the Sat we dandered around some of the delicatessens......oh my word, the stuff some folk eat is beyond me! We went in hoping to buy chicken but after seeing what was sitting beside the chicken we left thinking we'd have the vegetarian option, lets just say if the stuff had started to move i wouldn't have been surprised!!! :)
On the Sunday morning we left first thing to get the train back to Chicago.
