Duuuuuuude. Weather in Ireland is an abrupt change from Italy!!!!! I went from sunny and 70+ degrees to today in Dublin, with wind chills of less than 40 degrees, and cold cold rain. Brrrr.
I dunno if I brought enough clothes for this, especially if I keep getting wet every day! My rain shell is pretty good, but after a couple of hours walking around in the rain, things were getting damp, and I don't have rain pants... Oh well, with luck I won't melt.
So far we're still in Dublin. Explored a bit during the day, ate food and spent a long while drinking tea trying to warm up after a visit to St. Patrick's Cathedral. Not sure yet what we'll do tomorrow; depends on the weather a bit. We'd planned on doing some camping, but consistent rain makes that a less attractive possibility. By Tuesday we're heading to a farm in the SW part of Ireland to spend ~4 days wwoofing, which will be nice.
Might head back into the center of the city tonight for dinner and a drink or two; I'd be delighted to find a nice warm fire in a fireplace somewhere... Brrrr.
Nothing particularly photo worthy yet; that'll come when i get out of the city probably. It's nice to be with friends again (even if they're jet lagged and I'm adapted - they're snoozing right now). And in a place where I (mostly) understand the language again! Makes things much much simpler.
