|St. Brendan's Ave, from my front door|
And the cars all drive on the wrong side!! You go to cross the street and they come from the nowhere! And by nowhere I mean the right...
The radio on the bus here yesterday was talking about the "gale-force winds" (that and the GOP in Iowa which doesn't seem like it would be of too much interest over here, but is appears it is). And today I got to do quite a bit of walking around in those wonderful high winds (along with a great deal of the lovely Irish rain). Though as star said, "a rainy day is Ireland is still better than a rainy day at home". The wind was seriously-nearly-strong-enough-to-feel-like-it-is-honestly-going-to-knock-you-over-strong today. Which means when you are walking with it at your back it is significantly easier than when it is hitting you in the face with rain. So that bit in the Irish Blessing makes more sense.
I walked back from Star's tonight in the crazy wind and rain. I only took one slight, mostly-unintended, detour and besides that I found my way just fine ^_^
Now I'm watching PS I Love You with my roomies and their friends who are visiting. Ireland, Gerard Butler, and James Marsters in one movie, what more could you need? Plus Nutella = wonderful night...in Ireland!
