Day 139. I now know where everyone is in Ireland: on Grafton Street. It’s pretty much a combination of 5th Avenue and Third Street Promenade with its high end shopping options and street performers with their guitar cases open for donations. It had more character than 5th Avenue and certainly more than Third Street Promenade but still, the minute I got on it, I wanted off. Crowds and shopping aren’t exactly my cup of tea.
The highlights of day 3 in Dublin were Trinity College, Christian Church Cathedral and Saint Patrick’s Cathedral and right next to it, Malton park. I was feeling some serious divinity in the presence of these historic and stunning pieces of architecture. Prayers were said. Truly a blessed day.
Until tomorrow, create from what you have…many blessings.
