We went to the English Market in Cork today. They had an amazing amount of fresh produce, meat, chocolates, and much more! It smelled so great! :D
U WISH U WERE AS UNCOORDINATED AS I
“Leo and I were literally straight on the tip [of the boat], and we were about to go down slowly with the ship. It was a night shoot and we were outside and it was very, very cold, and we were up there on this tip literally, a hundred foot in the air, absolutely petrified, and they were adjusting the camera angle and Leo and I just hung on to each other for dear life. We had cigarettes hidden in the pockets of our costumes and the two of us literally were having conversations like ,’What would happen if we died?’ and I’d say things like ‘Leo, I love you, I really do love you so much. You are a very important person to me and I’d have your babies. I would, I’d have your babies, really, it’s fine. And help me God, dear God, please tell my mum that I love her dearly’. We were so, so scared. But that’s the nature of the game. You look back on it and it was all completely thrilling and compelling-every day.”
I sure do love waking up to this scenery!
Today is Day 3, and we’re on the bus to do the Ring of Kerry.
The tour director has been giving us some lessons on Ireland. There are 32 counties in Ireland, 26 in the south and 6 in the north. She’s also taught us some Irish, most of which I won’t even try to spell. It’s one of the other traveler’s birthday today and we sang “Happy Birthday” to her in Irish!
Patrick’s Bridge in Cork.
We just made it to Cork after about an hour and a half on the bus from Killarney. We’re stopping at the Cathedral and then we get some free time. The tour director says it’s still looking like good weather for us, but we don’t want to speak too soon!
