|We got to meet Chris today (Mike's sister who arranged our stay at Trinity College). We went for coffee and then she comp'ed us in to The Book of Kells. That was extremely interesting, and equally interesting was the Old Library of Trinity College. It was mind-boggling to see all the old old books... some of them over 1500 years old.|
|We did a bunch of planning today for the remainder of our time in Ireland. It's hard to plan when there are just sooooo many great options, but we've come up with a plan. We're keeping it loose, though, and not booking anything too far in advance. We do have a B&B booked in Clones for the 24th to make sure Brent gets to spend some time there.|
In Dublin, like in Paris and other places we've visited, bikes go to the front of the traffic queue at a red light. There's extra space in front for the bikes to move up. They go first. So awesome.
Queue for Book of Kells
If Chris hadn't gotten us comp'ed tickets, and taken us to the front of the line (THIS line), there's no way we would have gone to see the Book of Kells or the Old Library. I'm so grateful we got to have this experience!
The Long Room
The Long Room in the Old Library. Amazing. I would bet a Euro that the enormous room in Monsters Inc where all the doors are kept was modeled after this room.
