So a full Irish breakfast is something quite spectacular. The pudding that is not a pudding had a very interesting texture to it. There are two types, white and black. Color has to due with ingredients, blood for the black. The rashers of bacon are like slabs of ham cooked well, almost to the point of being crispy. The variety of cured meats was extensive with choices such as salmon, salami, pepperoni, and prosciutto. There were quite a few dairy products as well with cheeses, butters, and yogurts available. Baked beans for breakfast is a new thing that I didn't necessarily adopt. At the Camden Court Hotel there were some interesting "house special" fruit juices as well like a pear and bell pepper juice that was very refreshing.
The city has a vibrancy and active feeling about it. To be expected of an European Capital city. For me it is strange to walk through the streets of a city that has existed for over a thousand years. I remember as a young boy reading tales of knights and castles and here I am walking the same ground. The city in many ways is very modern. There are electric trolleys traveling along the streets and the number of pedestrians is great. The sound of traditional Irish music emanates from different Pubs in the Temple Bar district. This is a more touristy area with specialty shops and a bunch of live music.
