Halbe snapped this shot of a sodden Dublin pair, enjoying the sunshine/sidewalk on a Monday afternoon. Taken in Temple Bar.

We’re back in sightseeing mode, and have spent two days checking off items in Dublin: Guiness Storehouse, Trinity College, Long Library, Book of Kells, Temple Bar, St. Stephen’s Green, Ha’Penny Bridge, St. Patrick’s Cathedral. Any recommendations of things to do or see?

Best meal for me so far: bangers and mash from Gruel on Dame Street.

Two sausages on mashed potatoes, covered with onions cooked in a balsamic vinegar. Hearty and delicious.

Since arriving, I’ve been living a fairly Henry VIII-style diet. Lotsa meat. Dinner the night before was a grill selection: thick cut bacon, steak, and more sausage, accompanied with potato wedges.

I haven’t seen the emphasis on organic and local food here that was near-omnipresent in England/Wales. We did eat at “Nude”, an eco-conscious cafe created by Bono’s older brother, but its €2.25 wheatgrass shots did not appear to be attracting many customers.

Next, we’re considering renting a car to visit the northern coast of the island. Next week we begin work on a commercial goat dairy farm in County Cork.

    You have just named two out of the three reasons I never want to visit Ireland: drunks and sausage. The third, of course, is the possibility of running into long lost drunk relatives who want me to come to their pub for a sausage.

    Nice, that is so attractive! Are you sure that’s not you two; I don’t see faces… ha-ha;)~

    I like meat and all, but the wheat grass is worth it with a diet like that! You’re so lucky the Euro went down for your trip (although in general it’s not great, of course).

    OK. Seriously now. Isn’t the Book of Kells amazing?

    It’s amazing. The detail and color is astonishing. It’s like a little time capsule from 800 AD.
