july 5, 2012. the worst jetlag day ever. we landed at the local time of about 9:30 am. the four of us had not slept well on the red eye, prolly about 3 hours apiece, and so you can guess we were not so bright eyed travellers at this point in time. we freshened up a bit, got our rental car, which was a "larger car" being a nissan micra. not such a big car by american standards. we crowded in with all our baggage like four uncomfortable sardines in a tin and headed out to explore dublin. by exploring i mean we toured the guinness factory and hit a cop car. not at the same time, and not linked. but all in the same day. then, it was back to the dublin airport for a flight to newcastle!
