trip on ireland -forward

Ireland, one of top ten livable countries for human being, when I talked to my friends I'll go to Ireland for several months, they'll give admiration eyes on me, and here I come. It's my honor one member of ERI star of 2006 and I get a chance to work in Sun's office in Dublin for one and a half month.

We spent almost 24 hours on travel from Beijing to Dublin, stayed for such a long 6 hours in Frankfurt airport. We were exhausting when I settled down on Hotel. Harry and I spent one week in Hotel, then moved to an apartment that company rent.

To be honest, I do not like Dublin at the first sight. This city is dirty, people are smoking everywhere on the roads, lots of dog-end can be found in public area; Drivers are crazy, they always give quick stop just before the stop line, which I was too scared to go across road even the light is green for people; everything is expensive, calculated to RMB, I won't buy anything.

But after a time living here, after we have chance to go outside of Dublin city in the weekends, I know why people love Ireland. God give such a big green, plain grand to Ireland, the air is 100 times cleaner than that of Beijing. I'll give show you what I think for Dublin, what I think for Ireland with words and pictures.

Halton, Great posts! Your first and later impressions are very close to what I experienced which is amazing considering we came to Ireland from opposite directions. I'm sure Beijing is very different from Racine, Wisconsin. That "slam on the brakes just before the stop line" appears to be how driving is taught in Ireland. Thank goodness they rarely get ice or snow here. Maybe someday I'll sell brake pads and clutch plates. Ignoring litter, dog droppings and other grime, Irish air and water are probably cleaner than in my hometown also. We say "it grows on you."
