We are safely in Dublin.
Here are ten images from the last 30+ hours. They proclaim, “art matters.”
View of the Ringling Bridge, Sarasota, from our Delta flight just after noon yesterday.
We had a four hour lay-over in Atlanta. Because of that we learned from Angela about some art exhibits that are at the train level – you know – the one down that really long escalator that takes you to the train to get from one concourse to another. The exhibits are awe-ing! In one there are maybe a dozen large sculptures, all from Zimbabwe, each carved from a very hard stone – Springstone. Here is info on just one of the artists followed by a picture of his sculpture. The other exhibit on display right now is a history of Atlanta. It dramatically tells moving, poignant stories of the city evolving into what it is today through the civil rights movement, and before.
First view of the green of Ireland this morning about 7:30 am (2:30 am Sarasota time).
I love flowers.
a wee bit of what we saw while we waited for our hotel room to be available for us.
On one of the greens – this one at the entrance to the Chester Beatty Library & Gallery.
Brightly colored buses are everywhere in the city center . . . many, many, many of them.
Please do note the magnificent blue sky . . . no rain today . . . sun was pleasantly warm.
This cross is on the peak of a huge ancient church near Trinity College.
The good times are now . . . right where we are!
Hope to get to the National Museum of Ireland tomorrow . . . maybe more words then.
