So…an update since my birthday…………
Very uneventful as I was recovering from my birthday
After Irish History class, we came back to the apartment, ate dinner and then went out. We went to Tramco in Rathmines. It was the Erasmus student party and all the kids from Wake Forest were there so we had a fun time till like 3am when I came home.
This night we stayed in. Scott’s parents landed in Dublin and came over to say hi to everyone and see the apartment.
Scott’s parents took all the boys and myself out for dinner at a nice Italian place (seeing a trend here?) Then we took them to Oliver St. John’s in Temple Bar. We met up with the girls there and had a great time.
Today was a field trip to Kilkenny. We left school around 11:30 and got to Kilkenny a bit before 2. Once we got there, we got soup and bread for lunch. Then we all went on a tour of the Kilkenny castle. It was amazing and I had a lot of fun. After that, we went on a walking tour of the city and ended up at the old witch’s house which is now a tavern and that’s where we all ate dinner.
Today I went to the National Gallery and saw a few paintings that I loved; one of which was the dinner at Emmaus. Then I went to the National Museum of Natural History which pretty much sucked as it is only dead, stuffed animals. So then I walked over to the National Museum of Artifacts and History. Even though most of it was closed, I was glad I went because I got to see the Bog Bodies exhibit, which is where artifacts and bodies that have been found in the bogs by harvesters are on display. It was very interesting. Then I bought a gold claddaugh ring for myself.
I spent a lot of the day on campus today as we have no internet in the apartment. Tonight, I am enjoying a quiet night in since Dave and Kevin are at Amy and BJ’s apartment and the rest of the boys are at Oktoberfest.
