First thing we do this morning is run across the city centre to take a tour of the world-famous Guinness Brewery!

In the evening, we decided to do the Irish thing and go on a pub crawl. Well, there actually is a guided pub crawl for only €10! My friend Touti is from Madagascar and we were surprised to discover that everyone else on the tour, including the guide, was an American! I had been avoiding Americans for eight months, but I must admit that it was nice to hear their slight southern accent...
After lots of drinking, our group decided to head back to a pub we had been to earlier in the night, but instead got lost. The streets were empty as it was like 1am, but a couple cops were strolling the streets. They were quite friendly, laughing with us, taking pictures with us, letting us wear their hats... One girl was celebrating her 21st birthday and the Irish tradition is for her to be kissed by 21 strangers, two of whom were our new cop friends.
