Hey, we are in the middle of Dublin right now, but its not really as you would have pictured it. We arrived yesterday really early like 9, so we had been up since 5 in London to catch our flight, the drive in was not flattering, the city's pretty grey, kind of like New West or Surrey. The area we are staying in is filled with Polish people, literally everyone, the signs are all Polish and it's a lot of butchers and pubs. THe other side of the river is a lot nicer, more of what you would expect of Dublin, we didn't get to the pubs down there last night, we went to see Knocked Up and then went to the pub down the street which was pretty cool with an Irish band playing. We are going to the Guiness Brewery today for a tour which should be awesome. The otehr thiong we both noticed about this place is the extreme ugliness of a lot of the population, i'm not kidding almost all the guys under 30 have huge scars on the face, and then like half the women too, its a pretty rough area it seems. We are looking forward to getting the car and getting out into the country. the rest of london was great though, checked out the Tower of London with a Beefeater, British Museum, Westminister Abbey, Camden Town Market and the Tate Modern Museum, which were all really good. We will post our pictures in the next week once we are at my aunt's or uncles place so we don't have to pay or anything. GOod to hear from everyone, see you
