My First Visitor…Day 2

26 10 2010

Sunday came about and today the plan was to go to the city centre to walk a bit around and do some shopping. We made our way to the centre of town and walked a bit around. Shops do not open until 11am or 12 noon on Sundays, so we had some time to see some places. However at 11am we started making our way to our designated shopping area…Mary Street. We went round the shops and shopped and shopped and shopped. I have never done that much shopping in my whole life I think. We bought a webcam for Bernard, a coat each, a bath mat, clothes for me, some presents, a cute giraffe pyjama for me and Hippo bed slippers, gloves, ear muffs and I do not know what else. At around 3pm we were quite hungry so made our way to get some food…Bernard loves Subway sandwiches so that is what we got. Then went back to keep on shopping. This street is full of enormous shops…there is everything…Penneys, Dunnes, Debenhams, Zara, H&M…the list goes on and on. These are all shops taking up 3 or 4 storeys. It is positively exhausting.

We then made our way to my residence to put down our stuff, and then left to go to the OLV Gospel Mass. After mass, the others said they were going to a pub for a drink. We obviously tagged along. Unfortunately the pub had no food (it stopped serving food at 6pm), so after a drink and some chatting we made our way home where I cooked some pasta Bolognese and went to sleep soon after.
