All Aboard.

Cross country bus travel in the US is accomplished by the riding the 'hound. Greyhound that is.

In Ireland one can cross the country by bus as well. But you'll take that journey in a bus adorned with an red Irish Setter.

So I suppose that means that your bus ride in the US will be faster, but the ride in Ireland will be better to accompany you on a hunt. Or is better for hugs.  Sure, we'll go with that.

Two more from Cork.  I'll always fall for clever (or not) word play.  And below is small scene from the English Market, in operation on the same site since 1788.  Pictured is a selection of olives and other pickled foods.  Not pictured, the booth around the corner that sold incredible smoked salmon, trout, mackerel and mussels.

Side by Side

The old and new side-by-side in Cork, Ireland. A fairly common sight in Spain as well, for someone from a relatively young country as the US living in Europe the contrast never really gets old.
