Friends Come to Ireland!

Friday, March 9, 2012

Kat and I, being the wonderful people we are, decided to surprise Brent and Miranda at the airport.  Unfortunately they were arriving around 5:30 in the morning which meant we had to be up by 3:30 to ensure that we caught the aircoach and didn't miss them.  Though the aircoach should take about 40 minutes to get to the airport we went through some kind of time warp and were there in 10 minutes.  We were going to give ourselves a 30 minute buffer in case we were running late and they were early but we ended up instead with and hour and a half wait and their flight was running a half hour behind.  It was too early to even find a way to entertain ourselves though we did make friends with some elderly tourists who apparently accidentally snuck through customs and into the country.

After B & M finally made their way through customs we were back on the aircoach and into the city.  We decided to be nice and let them put their bags down and shower but no napping was allowed.  One friend (who shall remain nameless) seemed to believe that he is immune to jet lag so I was determined to prove him wrong.

We headed to Bewley's for breakfast and coffee and after that we did a walk through Temple Bar.  Our original plans were to give them a grand tour of the city but, since they had been flying all night and Kat and I hadn't really slept the night before, we instead decided to show them Tesco to get some food for the week and then head back for naps.

After lounging and napping we woke up to make fajitas for dinner.  Again, we had big plans to go out and get pints but that quickly turned into getting some cans at Spar and sitting in our apartment playing Draw Something on our respective iphones/ipods/ipads.  We are such great hosts in this fine country.
