Dublin is a peaceful city. Unless you’ve had a few rounds of Guinness. I guess like in most European cities, the buildings aren’t tall. But they’re old and historic— filled with shops and cafes.
When I took these photos, I hadn’t seen the boutiques of London, Paris, or Vienna. Dublin is the first European city I’m visiting. I suppose this is a great start.
While I was in Dublin for work, I couldn’t help but take in my surroundings and breathe the cool air. It was 8-12 degrees C. Luckily, it wasn’t raining during the times I was out on these streets.
A feeling I had was of delight and sadness.
Delightful to see old buildings survive the ages.
Sadness? Because there are plenty of old buildings in other parts of the world that get destroyed by conflict and war. Many of those old buildings were destroyed in Manila by the Japanese and the Americans in World War II. What if we still had those buildings?
