Last Night in Belfast

Antrim_Coast_near_BallycastleLast night in Belfast… goodbye, beautiful city… tomorrow, on to Derry via Paddy Campbell’s Famous Black Taxi Cab Tours of the sectarian areas of Belfast and then a drive along the gorgeous North Antrim coast to the Giant’s Causeway (beautiful hexagonal basalt columns along the sea), Balleycastle (where, on a clear day, you can see to Scotland), and Dunluce Castle (13th century medieval castle ruins). It will be a beautiful day by the sea… I did the Belfast piece of this tour when I was last in Belfast in 2009 (and drove the rest of the time, myself), and I wanted my students to experience the history and stories of The Troubles places and people… as well as the stunningly beautiful North Antrim coast. I am excited…
