Trinity College was established in 1592! It was very beautiful. I want to go back sometime to visit the library that is as old as the college. It is the largest library in Ireland.
We also did a little bit of shopping (mostly the window shopping type). We did this on Henry Street where most of the city shops for clothes, food, electronics, and whatever else they need. It's all on Henry Street. People walk around with their carry-on bags with wheels in order to carry their purchases. It sure takes a load off of your back and keeps your hands free since you can't just run and put your stuff in the car (what car?!). There are very few places available for parking in the city centre anyways.
We finished the day with a McFlurry at McDonald's, reminding me that no matter how far you go, some things stay the same! :)

|This was a house of some famous guy (can't remember his name) that is located inside St. Stephen's Green|

|The outside of the church. It was right next to the first building that housed ucd, in which James Joyce studied.|
|I had to take this picture without flash. This is the inside of the church we wondered into. It's a bit blurry because I couldn't use flash! A wedding was going to happen here soon.|

|This is another picture of campus. It's nice to have the covered walkway in the rain that is always hitting unexpectedly.|
