Culture Night

Last Friday we went to Culture Night in Dublin. It is a huge, city wide event held annually where they provide free entry to museums, have bands performing throughout the city, and have different little events moving around. The weirdest thing was in the post office when they had a marching band go through playing "When the Saints Go Marching In" while people in over-sized, creepy mascot like costumes were roaming around. We toured through St. Patrick's and Christ's Cathedral and explored a little around the city. There is so much amazing architecture around here. We wanted to get out of town and see the country this weekend, but Evelyn and I have both been sick for a week.

School is going great. I love my logic class, it's like a big game. I went to a meeting last week at school put on by one of the societies called "Obama, Hope or Hype?" It was really interesting to hear outside perspectives on what's going on in the election, and they really liked hearing my American perspective too.

Stacey arrived in England last week and I'm trying to arrange a time to go visit her, as well as going to Scotland to see Christian. I am excited to see more of Europe while I'm out here!

Here are the pictures from culture night, as well as some photos of my room. If the link doesn't work (like the last one), try copying and pasting it into the address bar.
