Christ Church Cathedral
Back in Dublin for the day, we decided to check out Christ Church Cathedral before heading back to our room. It was pretty cool, except for some suspicious information on the pamphlet about the church... Something about Church of Ireland being a continuous extension of the Catholic church...  There's a Cuban saying: "Trying to cover the sun with one finger." It's what you do when you close one eye and cover the sun with your thumb and try to pretend it's not there. You end up looking like a fool because obviously, the sun is huge and it's still shining, and everyone else can see it. I leave it at that.

After Christ Church, we wandered around St. Steven's Green for a bit, then got completely lost. After some wandering around, we found our way again and headed back to our room for showers and relaxing, before heading out again. Kris and Mary took naps, while I went downstairs to the bar and got a couple of bags of ice for my knees. I figured we walked at least a good 10 miles that day, between Howth and getting lost in Dublin. My knees managed to melt the ice in 20 minutes flat.

We headed to Temple Bar again, had some tasty flatbread pizza at this greek place and got a couple of drinks at the Porterhouse. We headed back fairly early, we were all exhausted and we had to be at Heuston station the next day at 6:00am.
