(Side note: Far too jetlagged to post yesterday. Basically just got settled in at our homestay, met Ann (our homestay mother who made us wonderful meals), explored around Killester (the “suburbs” of Dublin where we lived), and fell asleep while watching Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter with Ann. )
|Home Sweet Home!|
All in all it was a great day. Started off a little rocky. Knowing we’d have to take the train into the City Centre at 9, Shannon and I set our alarms for 8. So of course we woke up at 8:30. And by we I mean Shannon, myself, and our homestay mother (or grandmother, to be decided) who also overslept. Great move in the first day. But, as we’re learning there’s never an Irish meal that does not include tea, so we sat down and had a full breakfast before running to the train station to catch the train (which was delayed by the way, crisis averted).

Went home to Ann waiting up for us to hear how our day went. She’s the sweetest. Time for bed. Classes begin in the morning! Night, everyone!
