More rainy Belfast

Although we didn't spend a whole lot of time in northern Ireland,  I would encourage people to go.

I know even,  ten years ago people would still be afraid to go.   All I can say is it's a beautiful place, and everyone we meet was friendly and so excited that people are coming to see their country.

I didn't get any photos,  but we did brave the hoop on hop off bus (with no hopping)  just to see some of the murals.   There's a whole peace wall that stands still around the city.  

Next to the old court buildings,  there are  places the walls are, 17 feet thick and reinforced with steel,  so they could withstand a car bomb.

The opera house there is beautiful and was rebuilt 3 times after being bombed.

It's an amazing part of this beautiful island.
