Luckily the curbs in Dublin are full of reminders of which way to look because I am functioning (barely) on very little sleep…
I left Chicago Sunday night, the flight is about 8 hours and it got me in bright and early to start my work day. I tried to sleep on the plane but only managed about an hour. I used time to watch movies I would likely never watch. The Sitter, stupid but funny. The Iron Lady, disappointing. Was the point that she lost her mind?
After a full day in the office and no sleep I was fully intending to eat a light dinner and head back to the hotel for sleep. Well after dinner we caught our send wind, and then our third and next ya know it is 1 a.m. Ouch! I woke up a 6 a.m. Dublin time just like clock work. Grabbed breakfast to bring to the office. It is no Irish breakfast but I do love the rhubarb flavored yogurt.
I realized on the way into the country when they were stamping my passport that I was here exactly a year ago. Now that I am here, it feels like it was just last week. We went to Gallagher’s Boxty House for dinner, we’d been previously and knew it was a safe bet. Went with the Cashel Blue Cheese & Mushroom Boxty Potato Dumplings. I hate mushrooms but was lured by the blue cheese sauce. Good choice, the dumplings are like gnocchi and the blue cheese sauce was amazing.
Before dinner we went to a pub near the office to enjoy a pint of Guinness. It is located on the river which has a nice view and great people watching.
