Since 2008 – Progress Through Politics

It is yet another beautiful day here in Dublin.

However I’m stuck indoors listening to professors in nerdy glasses boorishly lecturing (hectoring) us. Today I had to get up early in the morning because my presentation was scheduled first in the session. It was misery as I’m not a morning person. Who can do this to me? But anyway it went alright.

Yesterday it was big news when Emerging Springboks tied the game with Lions at 13-13. The last 15 minutes of the game was quite exciting to see the Springboks going from 6-13 under, to drawing the game. Of course, I kept my mouth shut in the Pub.

Dublin is a very interesting city with a beautiful City Center (Centre). The architecture around Trinity College was absolutely gorgeous (or at least it is to the untrained eye). It is the home of the Book of Kells and the Book of Durrow.

I have been watching the Iran coverage on Irish TV, mainly through BBC and 24 Hours (The French Channel). The Brits and Iranians expelled diplomats in a tit-for-tat action. The other day folks on the TV were also debating Obama’s Press conference. It is fascinating to see how Europeans view us and their debates are so different.

BTW do you know what is a Movie-um? Can you guess? Last Sunday I was strolling on the bank of River Thames, nearabouts Lambeth, and came across Movieum! One more word added to my English lexicon, thanks to the “moronic” Brits. 😉
