Notes

Flag of Ireland  , County Clare,
Wednesday, August 19, 2009

-Irish People: Some of the friendliest I have encountered yet.  I like them. 

-Black Tea Streams: When I was biking in the country, I crossed over a bunch of streams and rivers.   I wasn't sure if it was 1773 and the Boston Tea Party was happening upstream because the water was so dark and nasty looking, it really looked like Black Tea was flowing down there.  Maybe all the farms?

-Stone Fences: All the stone fences holding the livestock was pretty cool to see.  Especially when they were built as far as the eye could see.

-Irish: They can't say the "Th" sound for anything.  The word "three" sounds like "tree."

-Rainy As Hell:  Rainy and gloomy as hell.  I'm not a personal fan of it.  It's good I didn't just move to Portland OR.  I'm optimistic that it will be better weather than here.  At least I won't need a jacket in August. 

-B&B Heaven:  I think every house has been converted into a B&B in Doolin.  There everywhere and seem to bring the older clientele naturally.

-Beautiful Countryside: As I said in my Doolin write-up, I have a trip in the future that involves me and a bike going around Ireland.
