Ok so i know last time I wrote i said we were going to Limerick...but we had an adventure and ended up in Dublin. So here goes the story. We left Cashel by bus to a town where we had to catch another bus to Limerick. Once we got to the town we waited at the bus stop that had the times for the bus to Limerick, we were there at the right time...but what we did not know was that the bus stoped at the other side of the street...so we watched it drive by us. The next bus comming was to Waterford (where the crystal is made)so we decided that we would go there instead. But as were were wating for that bus one for Dublin showed up...so we decided to go there instead. We arrived last night and found a hostel, it was a bit expenisive so we moved to a new one today...it seems nicer so thats a plus. We hit the city last night..but not very hard, we only stayed around our hostel and did not make it down to Temple Bar (the big party district here)perhaps tomorrow night..the only problem is is that they all have covers of around 10 euro (15$ can) and when on a VERY tight budget its hard to pay that plus drinks its hard to justify. Today we did a literary pub crawl (i guess thats what happens when you travel with an Englush Lit Major) but we had a blast. We started at this pub where Bono (of U2 fame) played when he started out and our tour guide/ actor recited works from Becket, James Joyce, Oscar Wild and other famous Irish writers while stoping at pubs along the way. The highlight of the day was that i won a free T Shirt for being able to answer questions about the writers...GO ME GO. The rest of the afternoon was spent eating and shopping but was really fun. We have three more nights here and i hope to get to the Guinness storehouse...its a museum of Guinness ads and things like that...and the big bonus is that you get a free beer at the end...WOOP.
