Dublin - 2014

We went to visit friends and family in Europe in the summer of 2014, which included a visit to Dublin, Ireland. There were many cakes.

A hooded crow

I had never seen a hooded crow before, so this was a nice surprise.

Typography

There is so much going on in this text. The use of "ye" for "the", but then also an actual "the" at the end, A superpositioned "e" but then not everywhere, a rotated ampersand, a rotated 5, esh-style "s" but then also regular "s", using = as word-breaking hypen, a ...fleuron to hide alignment errors? What is going on here?!

Christ's Church

generally, this church is much sparser than any other catholic church in the rest of Europe.

Swift

memorial, or original? I don't know, but 1713 is a pretty long time ago by now. Also, an amazing mixture of writing styles.

Cakes!

The (original) Queen of Tarts is a lovely little cakeshop.

More cakes! ... minus one

The (original) Queen of Tarts is a lovely little cakeshop, and we made sure to consume two some of it. Notice the mysteriously missing lemon meringue tart...

Lemon meringe! And sponge cake!

So tasty...

We'll leave it up to you

"lunch" may in fact not be.

The great famine

it effectively wiped out Ireland, it had to reinvent itself, the language it spoke, the culture it'd adopt, and who it allied with.

Industry

I just like structures like these.

Also a bridge in Dublin. The Samuel Beckett bridge, in fact.

For a convention center, this building is crazy.
