Knowledge is Power

As many of you have noticed, in recent months the tensions simmering below the surface in Northern Ireland since the signing of the GFA in 1998 have been boiling over with more and more regular occurrences. A few weeks ago, a Catholic cross-community worker, Kevin McDaid, was beat to death by a...

Ahhh, relaxing day of NOTHING!

Oooooohhhhhh, such a nice big sleep in today! It was so wonderful and nice and cozy! We had a lazy lazy lazy day. Taking it easy, doing some washing, reading our books before deciding we should probably do something productive for the day and head out back in the city of Belfast. It was once...

Goodbye Mr T, hello again Belfast

Quick vacuum and wash of the car and it was time to hand the A team back. We didn’t waste time with a long drawn out goodbye, they're no good for anyone. We just wished Mr. T many happy travels and moved on. It was sad, but it was the best way to deal with it. added by chris: We had done...

Black cab tours and a drink with a local

We decided today that the easiest, and may I add safest way to see Belfast and its explosive, violent past, was on a tour, so we did what they call a ‘black cab tour’ and it is just as it sounds. A cab will pick you up, though we had a red one, and it will take you on a tour around the streets...

Belfast bound

The start to our day saw everything being a bit “quick” today. A quick shower, a quick pack, a quick brekki and a quick walk to the city station in order to catch our train to Belfast. Irish way of life gets under your skin. We’ve been here all of 3 days and already I feel comfortable and...

Belfast, Dublins smaller, Irish brother

We only spent two days in Belfast. We took an mid morning train from Dublin and a short 2 hours later we were there. It was such a difference being away from all the tourism. The violence in Belfast has drastically gone down in the last few years and tourists are just starting to see it as a...

"What's That You Say?"

Did you know that in Belfast, your pants are your underwear? As in, the pair of what I call pants that I put on over what I call underwear, here is actually... underwear. This has caused me an enormous amount of confusion over the past few months. For example, I got a free massage the other day,...

Its Own Little World

This morning Bronagh and I were talking about different places we would like/would not like to live in Belfast. I had mentioned that Tomas and I were considering moving to the Lower Ormeau in South Belfast, which is closer to town and sits nestled along the banks of the Lagan River. It's a...

Helicopters Overhead

A day without a security alert in Belfast has become a day that I feel lost. Why? Because nearly everyday there have been security alerts in Belfast, ever since the Monday about two weeks ago when they began burning cars and hijacking buses all over North and West Belfast, including off...

Remember When

I actually have a lot of things to catch up on, which I have been planning to do, but first I need to do a little reflection. I'm going to try not to be negative, and remember that the whole purpose/inspiration of this entry is that I used to be this way too, and there's nothing wrong with it...
