We're just past the half way point in our trip, so its time for a mini update. Here's a little of what we did with our time in Ireland.
Like any good tourist visiting a place, we opted to walked around instead of the generic "Hop On Hop Off" method of seeing a place. When thinking about Dublin before we arrived, I had a hard time recalling the specifics of the city. But when I got there and started walking around, it all came back and I was surprised at how easily I could find my way. For reference, above from left to right is Casey, Thomas and Ryan.
This was probably the most interesting drinking establishment I've ever been to. When we walked in it was quite like the movies where everyone looks at you and watches as you walk though the pub as you realize that everyone here must be a regular. It was the most brightly lit and quiet bar I've ever been to, with the crowd being old men, family units including their children, and a few lone guys at the bar. It was so quiet that even with our whispers, we were probably the loudest ones in the joint.
On Sunday, May 20th, 2012, our friends Emily and Daniel got hitched!
I wasn't sure if it was cool to share too many pictures, but here's the lovely couple at the alter listening to the end of The Mamas and the Papas as she just reached him at the end of the asile. It was such a great ceremony, with lots of cheering and laughter, the best way I can think of to enter a marriage.
After dinner and speeches that ranged from emotional to hilarious, we headed upstairs for some dancing.
Now, we are in our apartment having breakfast in Copenhagen. From our first day here, I have concluded that this is the most amazing city and I want to move here. More updates to come!
