Almost a week in Ireland and...

.... I HAVE MANAGED TO NOT GET RUN OVER BY A CAR :D Woohhooo go me! ....although uhm uhm, if it wasn't for my coworkers Chris and Eleonore last night...ha ha good times. Hopefully I'll survive my time in Ireland :)

Yesterday we went to a market that's pretty close to work with a big group of MS coworkers (picture 1). It was great, we all bought fresh food for lunch and sat down in the sun. A rare thing in Ireland :) One thing to say: I don't think I've met a single Irish person so far - unless the cab drivers count :) French, Spanish, German, Italian, Dutch, American people......but no Irish! I had been warned that Dublin is quite an international city, but I still though I would meet some locals. I am gonna have to go Irish people hunting!

Last night we went out with a few of my co-workers and friends, Chris (Belgian), Eleonore, Nives and Marcus (all German) - picture 2, except for Marcus is missing. We went to this bar called Diceys Garden, a really nice place with a big open patio in the back - another rare thing in the area. It is after the bar that the "i-almost-got-run-over-by-a-car" episode happened, go figure why ;)

I noticed that you dont hold a guiness pint on that picture... Shame on you!!! :D
Un petit proverbe pour la route (appris a Belfast): there are only 2 kinds of people in the world, those who are irish and those who wish they were.

ha ha my first was a Guiness :) Then I thought I'd switch to mix it up - how foolish of me :D
