Belfast

We flew from lovely Edinburgh to Belfast. Belfast is kind of sad. If Edinburgh is the Brooklyn of the UK, Belfast is Detroit. Do you know anything about Irish history? We don’t really but the basics are that when Ireland decided it didn’t want to be part of the monarchy’s deal it voted to secede and the only votes in favor of staying came from the Belfast area. So at some point, I guess around the time all the violence was going down in Ireland, it just stopped developing. Now they’re trying to re-invigorate the area with lots of Titanic exhibits and shopping malls but it’s still an odd place. Of course, we didn’t really take any pictures of the sad parts so lets look at the pretty stuff.

Let’s pretend I didn’t abandon you and force you read literature. Yuck. This is way better. It has pictures.

A lot of stuff has happened in my absence. Wanna see it? Let’s start with the end of the MBA, a certain lady’s birthday and a trip to Harry Potter land and Downtown Abbey.

Balls and Cowboy Boots

Nothing says Oxford like slides in tuxes!  We went to two balls - they’re like college formals except they have rides and bumper cars and everyone is in tuxes and gowns and no one is throwing up or passed out.  It’s pretty amazing!  Pictures! —->
