The first days

well now that i have had some time settle in and have gotten to know the area, it is time for another post. After we were picked up from the airport we went to DCU (the school im studying at) and got a brief tour of the campus. We put our bags into our rooms and went into the city center, which took about 15 minutes by bus. Isaac and I found a nice little restaurant and got some food and our first pint of Guinness! Soooooo good! Then we were too tired to do anything so we came back to campus and slept. Yesterday we spent the full day in the city center just walking around and enjoying the sights. everything is like a fairy tale here. there are the little irish people playing music and singing in the streets, people actually dressed up like leprechauns and the streets are spotless! I couldnt help but laugh to myself on many occasions. We found The Porter House in the Temple Bar area and watched the Liverpool game, and everyone was into it! And no today we got our basic groceries and have decided to relax here on campus, even though everyone is home for break.
I miss you all very much and hope to talk to you soon. emails are very welcome. (

Well after a fairly short plane ride, Isaac and I have safely arrived in the Dublin airport. His flight was delayed out of Grand Rapids so he missed his flight from Chicago to Dublin- meaning he was bumped back to the flight I was on. The plan was under half-full, and we both had empty seats next to us, however the leg room was nice so we didnt sit by each other. We are waiting here for the people from DCU to come pick us up, which should be in about a half hour. Thanks for all your prayers and I'll be sure to keep you updated!

From the BIG APPLE

Well, I am sitting here in a small coffee shop, (Legal Grounds) ---> not staryucks, awaiting AG Silver's big show tonight. We're parked in a RV lot about 10 minutes out of the big city via the PATH trains. The band members are having lunch with some important people so Dave and I are just chillin until we need to drive REV and the trailor into the city. haha-- that will be interesting.
