Flag of Ireland  ,
Saturday, October 6, 2007

If London is the NY Yankees, Ireland is the Boston Redsox. London is full of pinstripes and ties while Ireland is the home of blue-collar, laid back, down-to-earth people. Dublin itself is no different than any other big cities I've been to, however, the people have made this place an exceptional place.

Good part of the day was spent on touring the city including the Guinness Museum. When I got there, the line was about an hour long. But I had a trick these people didn't know. I went in through the back exit door to avoid the line and the entrance fee of $20. I found this little secret from this guy at the hostel and you should use it if you're going to Dublin. I did feel bad about cheating, but I think I drank enough Guinness in my life to make up the entrance fee.

Luckily, I succefully made my way into the museum but the museum was not all that impressive except for the Gravity Bar at the top. You won't find better Guinness than right here at the museum so I guess it was worth the trip knowing that I had the best possible Guiness in the world. After the museum, I continued my city tour and took some pictures.

Back at the hostel, I was rooming with Anthony (French), Mario (Italian) and Pablo (Brazilian). We were all trying to communicate with each other but it was bit challenging. Frenchman spoke French and Spanish. Italian only spoke his native tongue and the Brazilian spoke Portuguese and little bit of English. We all spoke different languages but amazingly, I think we all understood each other one way or another. Nevertheless, I absolutely love having this opportunity to meet people from all over the world.
