Christ Church Cathedral
Today was another warm day in Dublin. After a small breakfast at the hostel, my friend Mary (from BU who's studying in Spain) and I went and visited Dublin's Botanic Gardens. It was very pretty, but I didn't take any photos with my digital camera, instead focusing on the film camera. After returning to the city centre, we visited Christ Church Cathedral. It was interesting, having underground catacombs, but much of it looked as if it had placed there in the 1700's or later (as if things had been removed and replaced). We then headed to St. Audden's Church, which was a more modern church, but I didn't take many photos. After that, Mary and I stopped at a fish & chips place to get lunch before heading to the Guinness Storehouse. The storehouse itself wasn't really interesting, just another extremely decorative tourist attraction. But I did get a free paperweight and a free pint of Guinness. Let's just say, that having Guinness a second time wasn't that great. The first being back in Scotland, and it was okay, but I didn't have a large quantity of it; while that of in Dublin didn't appeal to me whatsoever.
