Strolling down Merrion Road in Dublin...

Never ones to let a little jet lag to stop us, we landed in Dublin about 8:00 am, got a bus to our hotel and, miracle of miracles, got to check in! We began to explore our neighborhood which is the area where the U.S. embassy is located--we will get pics of that tomorrow. After a lunch of great soup--all soup seems to be puréed-we set out for the National Gallery, which was billed as one of Europe's nicest small art galleries, then headed to Trinity College to see the Book of Kells.

Neat. Especially "all supporters" and "sensibly". I understand sensibly . But all supporters? It the Horse She House also a a betting parlor?

Paige,
Thank you so much for sharing! My uncle was born and raised in Ireland and I'm sure he would love to see these pictures. I will definitely show them to him. He always talks about Guinness and all of the excellent pubs they have over there. I hope you will continue to have a great time in Ireland!

Wow! You guys are so lucky to see such a beautiful place. I love the pictures. The soup sounds like it tasted great! Enjoy the rest of your trip. I hope to hear more about it, in class, when you return.

Hi Dr. Vitulli and Dr. Santoli!

It's so great that you were't too jet-lagged when you landed! Traveling new places is so exciting, and no matter how jet-lagged I am I always manage to get a burst of energy once I land. It looks like both of you had a wonderful time exploring Dublin. It's definitely a place on my bucket list!

Pureed soup is one of my favorite things! I tend to get soup from every vacation spot I visit. Next summer I'm going a month long safari in Africa, and believe it or not I've heard the soup that is made for us during it is amazing!

What an incredible tale you both have to tell about your trip, and the wonderful places you're going. I hope you continue to have safe travels, and wishing you the best!

I can't wait to read more about your trip!

Take care,
Sara Kinney

A motivating discussion is definitely worth comment. I believe that you need to write more on this issue, it might not be a taboo matter but typically people don't discuss such topics. To the next! Kind regards!!
