FROM PHOENIX, ARIZONA
Bob's & Pero's Tour of Ireland (1998)
I flew into Dublin from Paris. I left Ireland from Shannon. So if you follow the numbers on the above map (from 1 to 13), you will see the order and the approximate route of our tour.
While we were in Ireland, it was Oreangemen's "the marching season." So I picked up this magazine, auspiciously named The Phoenix (my home town), with a photo that mocks the Orange order (Protestants) in Northern Ireland.
Once again, the unforgettable Cliffs of Moher, in a photo that looks like an impressionist painting...
...and yours truly at the same spot.
Two bodhran players (pronounced "boran" - for more on that, see the "Countryside").
Another "painting-like" scene from the Irish countryside.
And finally, some of the home-spun Irish sense of humor.
