When Keogh asked was anyone awake, we all answered. We got up and grabbed breakfast in the Irish Bar again and then went along the river front and decided to do like the locals and seat on the grass with a local beer or Appelwein.
It was a beautiful sunny day. I wish Dublin had a nice riverside like this. I dont think the River Liffey is as nice as this one either. It was amazing the amount of people out enjoying the sun beside the river. It truly was a great spot. As you might have guessed, I really enjoyed this part of the trip.
As the clock ticked by and the refills kept coming, it finally came to a time when myself, Akash & the other Derek had to run off to catch the Liverpool game on tv. We finally made it to Sachenhaussen and got comfortable right in front of the tv.
We split up into taxis to go but somehow the taxi with me and Del got lost, but we had the funniest time in the taxi pretending that we crazy soccer fans and the the driver was our favourite team! We sang all the football chants and cheered whenever he turned a corner or took off after a red light!! He clearly hated us but it sure was fun. The two of us started wandering the streets asking for directions everywhere we could, it turned out the address Claire had given us was not the right one at all.
Mayhem ensued on the streets. I dont know who did it. I just ran away from the various crime scenes. Damn restaurant owners thinking they are smarter than me. We just wanted to sit at one of their tables. The had chained the tables and chairs together. Someone. Not me. Somebody moved the tables and chairs into a very intricate design out on the streets. Blocking traffic. Running of giggling like school girls attempting to take photos of their dirty deeds.
We did eventually get to the bar. According to the sign it was an Irish bar but it had a distinct American feel. The odd American flag gave it away. We really did not fit in with the crowd either. It was mostly R&B which the Irish are not particularly known for, especially Irish accountants. We left our mark on that bar and everyone there. Actually was a great spot.
