I’ve arrived safely in Ireland, managed to stay up until dark, and slept till noon. I’ve even gotten a few errands done, like establishing that my Irish bank account is still in good form. Tomorrow I’ll get my phone (which isn’t) reactivated. And so on.
It’s amazing how normal it feels to be back in Galway. My major shocker? Eyre Square, which was a tangled mass of construction materials last I saw it, is green and pretty. It’s nice when the major changes you see in a city are good ones.
