Ireland: Day 7 (Dublin - Trinity College)
Contrary to the plan we had of going the entire route first before going down to explore a particular site, we stopped at Trinity College because 1)really cold and needed some coffee and 2)need to use the facilities. A coffee shop near the college addressed both of our concerns. In addition, they were selling really yummy sandwiches, which we were persuaded to buy take away for later.
Let me tell you that the scene outside the campus is jumping. Lots of people in the sidewalk trying to get somewhere fast. Like what you expect to see in a big busy city, which is the first time we see it here and the only place we see crowd.
Coffee consumed and bladder emptied, we walked across to the University of Dublin, aka Trinity College, and a visible sign to the library can’t be missed. There is an entry fee to see the Book of Kells, which I have no idea what was it about before coming to visit it, and the exhibit is worth the fee, I tell you that. I love museums, but I am the type to just browse and not read the information next to the exhibit you know. But here, I may have read every single word about the exhibit and marveled at the illustrations. Unfortunately, absolutely no photography is allowed. A woman was taking a selfie and was reprimanded by the alert guards, who are posted at every corner it seems. The woman had the gall to say she’s not taking photos of the exhibit; she’s taking a selfie of herself, hehehe.
Since no photography is allowed in the exhibit room, you can check out the images on Google here and also here.
