You know how the Eskimos have over 100 different names for snow? Well the Irish have almost as many descriptive words for "rain" (including lots of expletives I won't bother mentioning). My favorite is "soft" rain which is just a bit of drizzle, nothing serious, which usually has some sun in between the showers.  This is the kind of rain we experienced mainly at the beginning of our trip for a few days in Dublin.  Though I had passed through the city before, I hadn't done the tourist thing until this time.  I totally fell in love with the Georgian architecture, the hanging  planter boxes that seemed to be everywhere and the little shops off Grafton Street.  Oh, and of course there was Topshop.  What more could a girl ask for?  A prison tour you say?  Well yes, I even got to indulge my prison fascination when we went took a tour of Kilmainham Jail.  Not only does it have a ton of historical significance, but it's also been used in lots of  movies like, In the Name of the Father, and The Italian Job, just to name a few.  All in all, I couldn't have asked for a better start to the next three weeks.
