Day Five: Dublin

For once, the ship actually stopped in the intended city. Andres and I decided to walk downtown instead of paying for the shuttle. That may not have been wise, because it took us half an hour just to work our way out of the port, plus another half an hour to get to the city center.

The first thing we saw once we cleared the port was a tall ship flying a Mexican flag. We also found a postbox, which let us mail the postcards we'd picked up in Cork the previous day and made the entire expedition a success. (That was our goal for the day, mailing the postcards; all further exploration was bonus.)
