Well, I'm in Dublin, Ireland right now doing an installation on a ship. The warehouse we're working in isn't open on the weekends, so I decided to do a little exploring around Dublin. Here's the highlight reel, but I suggest you go check it out in the photo album under 'travel photos'. I somehow found the High Street shopping area, without really knowing where the hell it was. Loads of cool stuff I can't afford right now, but I'll get the chance to go back before I leave. I stumbled around for a while, and found Dublin Castle, which was pretty cool. I even lucked into a sand sculpture exhibition in the castle courtyard that all my art buddies at The Dorsch Gallery would probably like. As usual, most of the pictures are of stuff that only interests me, although I did have the presence of mind to change the captions on them this time right away, so you might be able to have some kind of idea what they're supposed to be pictures of. Oh yeah, I almost forgot - I took a stroll through Alcoholic Hell, the temple bar section of Dublin. Probably 90% of the shops there were bars of some sort. And you were wondering how the Irish get a bad rap for being drunks...
