My Goodness, My Guiness

At the Guiness Storehouse they take your picture and let you email it to some friends. It's a little dark but you can tell we're having fun.

Today we treked out to the Guiness Storehouse.  After waiting in a Disney World length line, we were on a self-guided tour of the brewery.  We got really cool paperweights and a free pint of Guiness at the end.  They had a bar called Gravity and you could look out and see the entire city skyline.  We went on looking for the Kilmainhan jail but we ended up finding it's hospital which is now the Irish Museum of Modern Art.  Unfortunatly we didn't get to see many exibits because we were the last ones in there and they were locking the doors behind us.  The exibits we did see were rather interesting but sometimes I just don't get modern art.  We went window shopping down one of the main shopping streets, Grafton Street before going to eat dinner at Fitzsimon's in the Temple Bar area.

  Rachel even tried a traditional Irish dish:  Beef and Guiness Pie which she said tasted like beef stew.  We went down to the bar on the first floor and started people watching.  This place was so not our scene.  They were charging 15 euro to get in and these people were actually paying it.  We ended up meeting two guys that recognized us from the hostel.  They were part of a Stag Party (bachelor party) and called the two of us "ladettes."  Apparently we are girls that act like blokes.  I guess girls aren't supposed to drink beer by the pint. -Kate

Forgot to add:  In Temple Bar Square there are a bunch of street performers.  We saw some guy limbo a flaming stick that was on WINE BOTTLES!  I could never get my body to get down that low!  Highly impressive way to beg for money.
