I just got back from the pub, drank two Guiness, and got to listen to three Irish dudes playing violins and an accordion. It's exactly like I expected, and much better in a lot of ways. We're in Killarney, in the mid-western part of the country, south of Galway and directly west of Cork. Tomorrow we'll try and climb the highest peak in Ireland at a measely 1040 metres, but it looks rugged and should be a fun adventure. I'll have much more to update, including a description of St. James Gate, the Guiness Brewery, when I have more time. I'll be back in Sweden Wednesday, and until then I'll enjoy the greenery of Ireland. Thanks for the posts about my political pieces, more on that when I get back to Sweden.
