IRELAND, ARRIVAL DAY IN CORK

Jet lag and  my DRDA 7R  in Cork, Ireland

Sept. 28, 2016

A theory  exists that  any where from 10 to 60 percent of the world’s population  possess the DRDA 7R Gene , also known as the wanderlust gene.    It’s that gene that  constantly feeds you  an insatiable  desire for new adventures, convinces you need to keep a suitcase packed with the essentials at all times  and leaving at a moments notice doesn’t rattle you in the least.  Thus……

Greetings from Cork, Ireland!…….. where  you can find me and  my DRDA 7R , ready for endless  adventures.

On my initial  meandering  through Cork I stumbled upon the  English Market and   in my-then- jet lagged brain,  I found these pigs heads  an interesting photo, and wondering, how often do  the Irish need a pig’s head and for what occasion?   Upon more investigation, I learned that the ears can be deep fried, the eyes can be pickled and the rest can be used to make headcheese.  The education of travel.   : )

Saint Fin-Barres church, built in 1870, was another interesting and beautiful  find.

St. Fin’s  has many gargoyles to complete it’s French Gothic style.

The pulpit is unique and  was beautifully painted  60 years  after it was built.

In  all of the churches  I have  wandered  into during my travels, this was a first – little  needlepoint cushions hanging at each seat that says “kneel to pray”.

Small row houses behind the church.

Heading back to the hotel for a nap and in the true fashion of Ireland,  I discovered even the outside of the  launderette is decorated in style.

Stay tuned for more of Ireland  once my jet lap  subsides!

Thanks for reading!!
