GALWAY - Day 3, Cont.

So, the canals and weirs are beautiful. They offer some breaks from the constantly-roaring river through town. They also make a lovely sort of semi-green walking trail that crosses most of the city.

Set to the band I'm named after lol, the Great Big Sea of my mother's generation.

The West End of Galway is as solemn and flat as Edinburgh.

Like St. John's, the sidewalks in Galway randomly end for streetfront houses lol

By the time I crossed back over the river to the Latin Quarter in the core, the pubs were open.

I was supposed to go to a castle to meet our hosts' Canadian friends, but Joanne went instead. I stayed in the center drinking, people watching, and chatting with an Irishman and a Spaniard, and having fun until I had to bus it back to charge my phone/vape. Then straight back again... next post.
