Back from the auld sod

Sunday, March 06, 2005

Just back from Dublin, and still jetlagged and confused, so I’ll keep this brief.

Had a fine time with the folks in England, and with the friends in Dublin. Unseasonably cold in England (Trafalgar Square in driving snow was a new experience), and unseasonably dry in Ireland.

No surprise then, to return to Santa Fe to clouds and rain.

Dublin was by turns fantastic and frustrating (no change there, then), and Buendia packed her bags with the most-missed foodstuffs from those islands, including set honey, Tesco luxury muesli, potato farls and Odlums brown bread mix.

We visited ate in all the old haunts, and threw in a trip to Kilkenny.

More about the trip later.
