11 July 1995

Woke up, ate, went to group area. Boarded the coach then went to Trinity College.

This is the US embassy in Dublin:

Other Dublin photos:

The buildings here date from 1600 to the present. Saw Book of Kells, made by monks during sometime in the Dark Ages. I thought it was boring. The Long Room, a two-story library containing any work of literature from the British Isles. Very spectacular. Saw Gold collection at National Museum. Interesting. Some went back to the Bronze Age. Ate lunch then went shopping. Returned to homestays.

Similarities – except drive on other side of road, almost like home.

Difference – ?

Language – speak faster

Future Ryan says: Of all the things I remember most from this day, it is the gold exhibit, rather than the 1,200 year old book. Maybe I really am a human magpie, drawn hypnotically towards shiny things.
