Second Day In london
Ireland already feels like months away it all went by so fast. I was very lucky and met a backpacker from Seattle on my flight and some fun people from France and Germany in my room. I greatly enjoyed Dublin's beautiful old buildings, castles and cathedrals. The National Museum had an excellent exhibit on Irish archaeology, with things like Viking gold jewelry, Celtic weapons, and Egyptian art. I toured Trinity and visited the books of Kells, a beautiful Bible made over 1000 years ago. The Germans and I toured the area outside of Galway and the Cliffs of Mohen, the largest cliffs in Europe and facing west with a drop of 200m. They were fantastic travel companions; they spoke English well, were funny, laid back and practical. It's funny how stereotypes like this seem to be self fulfilling. The American I met on the plane turned out to be one of the loudest people I've ever met, but he had no shame and was hilarious.
More people in my travel group are arriving today, and I am still trying to find a way to upload pictures.
