This blog entry would not be complete without at least mentioning the crass Irish folk we met in the hotel lobby early this morning. It was definitely an experience, let me tell you. The mixture of their Irish accent and the shock that they actually may have said what we thought they said made for an event to remember for quite some time.
On the train, we met a German couple with a daughter who is studying in Grand Rapids, MI (what are the odds?) and a Spanish couple from Seville. It was fun trying to speak Spanish after not speaking or studying the language in years and struggling to remember how to conjugate the various verbs and remember my Spanish vocab.
Despite the rainy weather and nearly being blown into the ocean (okay, I’m exaggerating a little), the Cliffs of Moher were absolutely amazing. I also toured a 700 year old castle — all in all a very good day.
