We never did find an open internet cafe in London, and we only had an afternoon in Dublin, but much to our surprise, there’s an internet cafe in Doolin, right by the Cliffs of Moher in western Ireland! A bit pricey, so I’ll be brief now and catch up on everything once we get home in a couple of days.
London was much more about the pubs and the beer than the ice cream, though we did have some excellent double chocolate ice cream from a little stand at the Tower of London. Definitely recommended. Also an amazingly decadent triple chocolate dessert involving ice cream (and warm brownie and hot fudge) at the Pizza Express (these are much nicer restaurants than the name implies) right next to Shakespeare’s Globe Theater. We saw an amazing production of Othello there a few nights ago and had that fabulous dessert afterward. I think it took the three of us about two and a half minutes to demolish it.
Ireland is mainly about the Guinness, which is SO much better here than at home! But we did find a little gelateria (Boticelli’s) right across from The Temple Bar in Dublin that was up to Italian standards, if not quite up to Florence standards. Tomorrow we’re planning a day trip to Dingle, where we’ll sample Murphy’s Ice Cream, if all goes well. I’ll report on that from home, as we fly out the following day.
Erin go Bragh!
