My last day in Derry was a rainy day, so I checked out the Tower Museum, which chronicles the history of the City and also the discovery of one of the sunken ships of the Spanish Armada, which was a failed attempt to invade England in 1588.  After that I grabbed groceries and headed back to the dry hostel.  I had picked out a new book, so I pretty much spent the afternoon reading.  Now the hostel I was in was the second building, and everyone but me checked out the day before, so I had the entire thing to myself, all four floors.  A little too quiet for me, although I'll be longing for it later I'm sure.  But after a while it got to me, so I went next door to the main part and took advantage of the free internet and checked email.  While there I managed to make a new friend to head to the pub with, so I finally checked out some of the nightlife here - lots of Guinness and a shot of Jameson for good measure.  I must say I do like Derry, so if ever you ponder a trip here, Doolin, Inis Mor and Derry must be on the list!

Now to Belfast...
