Nikita, Mark, Kira, and I spent four of the free Paris days in Dublin, Ireland; it was a nice contrast from Paris, and I enjoyed experiencing the Irish culture, especially being curious about everything (what I learned to do from the class). Pubs, Irish music, and green everywhere! Two major sites we visited were the Guinness Storehouse and the Malahide Castle. Here are few pictures from the trip.
