Two Days in Dublin

Brendan and I went to Dublin for a couple of days to see Elbow at Vicar Street Monday night. The concert was fantastic. I've heard it said more than once that the true test of a band's talent is if they sound even better live than they do on the album, and this was definitely the case. I'll write more about Elbow later though. Here is another little photo essay from the last couple days.

Brendan's first ride on the Luas. Weeeeeeeeeeee!



(You know how much I usually deplore this sort of couple-y smugness, but I think the artistic value of this shot makes it worth including.)


Brendan and Diarmuid after lunch at The Bank on Dame Street. Probably the best gastropub in Dublin--food, service, and original nouveau decor all awesome.


Shitmonkey: the only toy Diarmuid and his brother Donnacha ever had, apart from a lego set.


Eh...no caption on this one.

And here are some shots taken from the balcony at the Elbow concert:

Thank goodness you're back. It was so sad not being able to talk to you on gchat. It felt like you were gone for weeks. No wonder that toy looks so worn. That must have been a sad existence only having one stuffed animal. On a different note, China can't seem to make up it's mind about Blogspot--today it wasn't blogged yay!
