Originally I was supposed to only stay in London for 1 week, and fly home to New York. But, as I decided to extend my stay in London, I went down to visit my friend Derek in Dublin and finally experience the Dublin nightlife, something I didn't get to experience the first time in Dublin.
Derek told me that I didn't have to worry about anything, that he will take care of everything, and as I was brought up to think that one cannot go into a home as a guest empty handed, I stopped and bought a bottle of Jameson for Derek's Family as a 'thank you' for their hospitality and kindness... Upon meeting me and seeing the gift that I had brought, Derek responded, 'my mom is going to LOVE YOU!'
Now I will always have a place to stay while in Dublin :D
I got to meet Derek's family, his mom, his cute as can be nieces Ema and Meagan, and his brothers.
I was wondering why my ENTIRE plane was filled with french people coming over to Dublin, now I know why. After enjoying the stew and mash potatoes that Derek's mother made, as well as some of her Irish coffee, it was off to a few pubs!
After going to the neighborhood pub, and dropping back a few, we pub hopped a bit, before meeting up with Derek's friends in a club at about 1am... We partied, drank til the club closed at 2:30am (a very good night)
Now I had a flight to catch early in the morning so I went to bed.
I my usual fashion, I was late to my flight... While on the bus to the airport I look at my watch its 11:00, my flight gate closes at 11:25am (Ugh) I race through the baggage screening line, bypassing EVERYONE! Ofcourse my flight had to be in the furthest gate possible,and using every bit of energy I had, I got to the gate ontime.... only to discover that the flight was delayed 1 hr, I LOVE RYAN AIR!
It was a very good weekend, wish i could have stayed in Dublin longer, thank you again to Derek and his family for making me feel right at home :D
