Views of the coast
Mahilide Castle Cemetary - Dont pay the admission into the castle. It isnt that impression as far as antiquiety is concerned.
Another couch surfing destination and another German keyboard. We are 2 for 2.
Speaking of the Smart Car, we've spotted another car on the road, believe it or not, even smaller then the Smart Car. It is very difficult to get a picture of the little fella in its natural habitat. Its diminutive size and efficient stride coupled with its camoflauged exterior, make it an elusive beast. However, being the astute study I am with camera always readied, I got a close up shot of the rig from the tour bus. This was the first car of this make and model I have seen to date. The very next day we saw another one, hell it could have been the same one, at a stopped intersection. From the bus I turned on the camera and fired off 3 photos all of which we seriously impaired by the flash from the inside of the bus. The man inside the vehicle rolled down his window and smiled at us. I bet his thoughts were, "crazy tourists, haven't they ever seen a car this small before?
The weather on the isles has been quite nice. We have only been rained on once i the 7 days we have been here. Quite unusual for this time of year we have been told. Berit's flat is about 15 minutes walking distance to the bus stop and another 45 to the city center of Dublin. Colette and I encounter this litte pup on the way to the bus stop at 8 a.m. When we came upon him, he was dragging his ass along the concrete. If that doesn't wake you up in 30 degree weather, I don't know what will.
And to answer your question Mel, yes he did have an Irish accent. He said something to the effect of, "Aye' mate, feckin' cold int it?"
We took a tour of the Dublin City center on a double decker bus. Have of the back end is open so the hard core test their strength against the weather. Colétte and I usually snag the front row if we can. The tour takes an hour and a half and does a complete loud in and around the city. There are several bus running concurrently therefore if you jump of one bus to take a couple of pictures, there is a bus only 10 minutes behind to pic you up. The cost was € 12 (17 US dollars)
This is what € 13.5 buys you (19 US)
