Luck o’ the Irish

Just some of the many bright costumes in Dublin's St. Patrick's Day Parade

Dublin has been treating me well; Ireland is a very welcoming city, important considering the thousands of tourists who have flocked here this week for St. Patrick’s day. The event itself was spectacular, I’ve never seen anything like the green masses that swarmed around downtown. Despite having to stand for 2 hours to secure a spot for the parade, it was definitely worth it for the hour long show. We were lucky to get a spot just down from where all the dignitaries (and people with enough money to pay to watch) were sitting, so we always got to see the performers at their best. Then the crowds flocked to the pubs to spend the rest of the day downing pints of Guinness (which tastes a lot better here in Ireland than anywhere else in the world).

Gingervere is the Middle English origin of ginger. Despite being the go-to word to describe redheads, some definitions of ginger are: spirit, liveliness, vigor, piquancy, enliven, and animation.
