Ireland 2007: Day 2, Dingle


On our way to the town of Dingle we were informed that many feature films were made in this area (including Ryan's Daughter and Far and Away). We pulled off the road for a few photo ops - including a stop at the famous beehive huts and a pleasant visit with Maura (who had a cameo in Far and Away!).

Continuing on, our next stop was to photo the "Three Sisters" and Mount Brandon (made famous by our very own Chet Raymo).

We enjoyed lunch and a few hours of leisure in Dingle. (Much shopping was done!) We also enjoyed a cathedral, the fishing docks and stories of hot whiskey.

On a side note: Ask some of us about our samples of ice cream - Peter and Jocelyn split the five-flavor special!

Granada - Dos

We next drove to downtown Granada where we checked into our hotel and had some free time.  Several of us met up with some special guests later while others explored the city on their own and enjoyed some of its finer offerings.

Our special guests were from the University of Granada's GRIIS Program - the one Stonehill has a partnership with for our students to spend a semester.  Amalia and Teresa work for GRIIS and they coordinated a lovely walk down the Avenido de Constitucion with Jessica '14 and Elyse '14 as well as Sara '12 (who has returned to Granada for a year after graduation to get post-graduate work done).  All five of them were welcoming and informative.  We saw some of the university and heard some history of the city, and some current facts as well:  300,000 people live in the city but 100,000 are students!!  This was apparent as the whole city has a college-town feel to it.
