Today started out waking up at 5:45am to catch the coach at 6:30am – this normally would be near impossible but I was still adjusting to the time difference (-10 hours) so it wasn’t too bad. For breakfast, I had some cookies and ran out the door.
We traveled on a full sized bus about 3/4 full to Belfast. There were a lot of people from USA and other parts of Europe. These days, there is a sense of unity between the Irelands and no longer any border crossings. The queen visited Dublin in the early 2000s to a receptive crowd. The only difference, the driver said, was that signs would go from kilometres to miles.
