When I got to Dublin after getting my disassembled box and panniers, I started searching for a relatively free area to unpack the bike pieces and get to assemble my transport. After wandering around for a bit, it seemed best to do it outside as the sun was out and the weather was warm. I found a patch of sidewalk on which to settle for a bit and got to work. Things seemed to be going alright initially and then quickly became more frustrating
The way into Dublin center proved much more confusing than I realized. I did tour a good chunk of the suburbs though. The city itself is quite clean, delightfully quaint while still maintaining a big persona. While touring around for hours mesmerized by the streets, parks, churches, and pedestrians I managed to get hit by a woman in a red Jaguar. Well not so much hit as bumped into. The incident caused my back tire to go out of alignment which I spent 1 hour realigning this evening. I've never had to "true" a wheel so it was quite the lesson minus the appropriate tools.
I decided to high tail it to the west coast after spending the morning and afternoon in Dublin. I had an amazing lunch at Cornucopia, a vegetarian restaurant in a posh district, with dizzyingly imaginative food and packed with loyal patrons
