I slept about twelve hours last night, a testament to how utterly exhausted I was after flying home. Thank heavens I didn't go to work today.
I spent the morning working on pictures from my trip. I didn't realize that I'd had so many of them, even in New Ross, Ireland, but I guess I snapped pretty much anything that caught my eye. Clicking on the photo on the right will take you to the New Ross, Ireland photo gallery. Ireland is a beautiful country, I sincerely hope to go back someday on vacation, when I wont have to work. I feel like there were so many sights I didn't see. On Ireland, I noted a few things. One, watch where you step, the dogs crap everywhere and there are no apparent scooper rules. Two, the Irish seem to be all business when working. It seems idle chat is more for the pub, most of the customer service at restaurants or shops, the folks seemed very short because they had to get back to the other things. I'm not saying they were rude, just always seemed busy. Three, cell phones! Everyone had one, it seems. It made me wish mine worked over there :)
After the bombing incidents, I admit that I wasn't all that keen going to England, even though I was working outside the city. In looking at the pictures, I realized I caught some decent shots of the city and the Tower of London. The pictures of the missing folks sent some remorseful feelings. Some of the missing are being identified every day, but it's a painstaking process and their recovery from the tube is not easy due to the unsafe conditions.
On the lighter side, I did catch a few cute guys here and there. One of the finest was the London Tower Beefeater to the right. Clicking on his handsome mug will lead to the picture gallery for London and Welwyn Garden City, the latter being where I was staying.
Again, big hugs to everyone who wished me a welcome home, it is greatly appreciated.
