Had a really nice weekend with my friend Jens here. We went out for pizza on Friday, then walked around Temple Bar with a not sooo yummy ice cream from Burger King and then had a cocktail at Cafe en Sienne. Saturday we wanted to have rolls for breakfast but they were super moldy (and I had just bought them the day before at ALDI and they said best before june07!!) but luckily I had bread, too. Anyways, ALDI gave me my money back without fussing about it and then we headed to town to do the Guinness Storehouse tour. It was nice and we got a pint of Guinness (and the glasses ;-)) plus the great view from the top of the building. Interestingly enough, they use German hops for their brewing!
More sightseeing and shopping downtown after that and then we had Indian for dinner. Yum! After a gazillion night photos from Jens we took the bus back home.
Sunday we took the train to Dalkey where all the rich and famous live. We couldn’t find a fish & chips place and so had to eat normal food at a normal place but then afterwards we walked along the coast and Jens got really frustrated by seeing all these rich people’s houses and cars. ;-). Ice-cream cheered him up a bit though I hope. Took the train and the bus and a taxi back home and then sent Jens off to the airport with that same taxi. Nothing else really happened. I went to bed at 9pm because I was so tired from the week and the weekend. This air mattress that my visitors sleep on is so annoying when they turn around and Jens turned a lot during the night so I kept waking up. I feel pretty awake today though. 🙂
My sister decided to go to a family from Connecticut in Glastonbury and not to the one in Texas. How far from you is that Uti? I’d have gone to TX but that’s just me and it’s obviously her year and if she’s so confident that this family is loads better than the other then I wish her all the best for it! But hey, no pool in the backyard! 😉
Other shocking news are that I might have caries! I found this black, tiny strip in my wisdom tooth! Ahhhh! I’ve never had caries before so I am really shocked! It’s no wonder really because the gums were covering it half way but not completely for a long time so obviously food came to the tooth but I couldn’t reach it with my toothbrush to get it out from under the gum pieces. Arg! It doesn’t hurt or anything but I can’t get the black off by brushing or poking it with a toothpick. Hmpf! Will buy some fluorine stuff later today to try and keep it small until I’m back home and can go to the dentist. I’m just so dissappointed! 😦
