"When I die, Dublin will be written on my heart"
-James Joyce

What an amazing city, a wonderful blend of the old and the new. Georgian Homes, history on every corner. O'Connell, Michael Collins, Brendan Behan, James Joyce, De la Vera, the River Liffy, the Grand Canal, U2.

And U2 and U2. Everywhere you go its all anyone is talking about. I went to the show last night.

I was so completely overwhelmed its hard for me to describe today. The crowd was electric, the band was in overdrive. It was a homecoming, a family reunion, a celebration all rolled into one.

The music, the crowd singing every word, and 80,000 people jumping up and down for 2 hours, shaking the raftes made for a real Irish party. Simply amazing. A dream come true for me.
