As promised ... pictures!!

There's really no proof that I'm in Ireland unless I show you pictures, right!? I mean, for all you know, I could be making up these stories and actually be in Vancouver or something.  Well, the proof is in the pudding pictures. 

Let's start off with my few days in Dublin:

Custom House, which was about two blocks from my hostel:

 

Trinity College and the Old Library:

Guinness Storehouse:
