Sunday the 30th--flying from Dublin to Cork

At An Brog with friends

Church near Kinlay Hostel, Cork

Just a building/sculpture I happened to come by while exploring in Dublin (yesterday)

St. Patrick's Cathedral (I saw this Saturday, but thought I should include some photos)

Sorry I haven't posted updates or pictures for a few days, but I was trying to figure out how to change the AC voltage for my computer charger so I could use it..turns out I don't need an adapter, but I just need converter plugs (which I got before I left, so it turns out I could have used it the whole time!)

Today was pretty uneventful. I checked out of the hostel in Dublin early in the morning and had about five hours to kill before I had to leave for my flight. First I went to a nearby memorial (I'm not quite sure what it was called, but it was beautiful.) Then I walked to a museum near the hostel, where the strap for my shoulder bag promptly broke, so I had to leave and get a new bag--it was heavy, so I went right away. After this I caught a bus to the airport and flew from Dublin to Cork.

As soon as I drove into Cork, I loved it. This city has much more of an authentically Irish feeling to it--to be honest, Dublin reminded me of Boston quite a bit. I checked into the hostel, started talking to some new people, and Maria and I met Lea and Michael and another friend that I originally met in Dublin at a pub in town called An Brog.

After a few pints, Maria and I went back to the hostel to sleep. It was a pretty uneventful day, but still delightful.
