So, it’s a bit late here in Ireland, but that’s because I’m finishing packing! I am going to Alsace, France for five days! And will visit the place where my great grandparents were from. Classes ended the first week of December, ending Michaelmas term. I finished my last paper and lab report Friday (Dec. 5th), went Christmas shopping in Dublin – so I have pictures of Grafton street lit up, with “Merry Christmas” in Irish- and started packing and saying goodbye to friends who leave for home. Last night (Dec. 9th) was fun because my Neuroscience classmates had a Kris-Kringle gift exchange- it was hilarious- you had to wear the gift you received at the pub.
That’s my little update, but will have more news (and pictures) when I return from France.
