World Trip 1999-2000: Day 103 – Derry to Dublin, Ireland

Highlights: Finding magnificent Muriel’s  covering the troubles.

We spent most of the day in Derry / Londonderry.  Early in the morning we again walked the wall, but this time looking for Muriel’s.  We got a few good photos.  The town was almost totally dead.  It seems Sunday trading is not allowed in most cases.  The rest of my time in Derry was spent organising statements from the hostel and police.

We caught the 3 pm bus to Belfast and from there the 5.30 pm train to Dublin.  You don’t really know when you cross the border as there is no Customs.

Since we had no local currency on arrival, and being a Sunday no foreign exchanges are open, we spent the night looking for a cheap restaurant that took credit cards.  We eventually found an Italian place that was okay.
