Jun 13, 2004 - Orientation

DUBLIN: I met my roommates this morning...I know Aaron from my Con Law II class, Brian is also from MSU and his dad is a Professor at Cooley, and Matt is from the Univ of Arkansas. All of them are very cool and laid-back types. They were part of the group coming from Edinburg and they all arrived after I did and they left for a night on the town before I got back from Dublin last night. I would have been too jet lagged to be much fun anyway. We had our orientation and got to meet our professors. It looks like it will be some good courses....

After finding the correct terminal, we then drove back to Dublin and found a Hotel for the night, right across from the Central Bus Station - the Hotel Isaacs. In the afternoon we took the open top bus City Tour - always a good way of checking out...

Jan 29, 2004 - Roaming the roads o' the Irish

Knowing that we would be returning to Dublin within a few days, our bus tour took us West across the central plains of Ireland to Galway, one of the most happening places in all of Europe today. We only got a brief look at this University town and its bustling activity before heading North along the Westcoast. Don't worry, Galway is scheduled for later as well. First stop: the vast boglands that cover a lot good percentage of Ireland. The peat moss bog initially created by the glacial masses from the Ice Age is often used as fuel source....
