Dublin to London

We've decided that we did not love Dublin.  It could have been the jet lag or the god awful fashion sense of most of the Dubliners not to mention the cloud of cigarette smoke surronding the fashion victims.  We did try some fish n' chips which was great in small doses with a Lipitor chaser.  We had great coffee, scones and beer.  As we were walking the city, we found three great places to eat.  Grub we went to for dinner, great food, cool atmosphere and good prices.  The city hall in Dublin has a great cafe in the basement, we loved the food and the cool vibe and last but not least was Queen of Tarts.  AMAZING!  We had dessert one night and went back the next morning for breakfast. 

Today we left Dublin for London.  London was not on the original itinerary, but we love this city.  Too expense, but we are only for a few days before we head to Scotland and go hang out with Johnny's ancestors.  John keeps speaking with an accent and it is annoying, but amusing nontheless.  The question is will he have a Scottish accent later this week?     

Since we didn't get into town until later this evening, we haven't done much here yet.  We are going to try a place called Toots (thanks Michael) for dessert and we want to go to Camden Market (thanks Carrie) and we will also do a little shopping.  I am in need of a little retail therapy.  We will post again soon!
