Hairy Lemon

In which we spend a day wandering the streets of Dublin, punctuated by castles, cathedrals, tulips, pubs and pints of Guinness…

Has it already been a week since I left Dublin? Crazy how time flies when you have exams breathing down your neck. But I’ll skip the dreary school talk.

Our second day in Dublin started with a not-so-early walk around the neighborhood (hi, we like to sleep in)…

Final destination - 3FE

Destination: C O F F E E

The hotel concierge had recommended 3FE, a hipster-ish cafe serving up artsy, fair trade coffee beans.

Final destination - 3FE donuts

And donuts. Can’t forget about the donuts.

We both got cappuccinos, then shared this interesting take on green eggs and ham (!) – pulled pork and two poached eggs with pesto hollandaise, on top of toast.

Touristing

After grubbin’ to our heart’s content, we decided to put on our tourist hats and explore.
