The Dublin Dichotomy
The thing I noticed about this beautiful city is that it has such a dichotomy between old and new...traditional and modern...bland and colorful. Victorian and medieval architecture are adjacent to post-modern, almost bohemian style of buildings. Pubs are littered among churches and cathedrals. A region deeply and proudly rooted in its own history is populated by a generation itching to make its own unique place in society. As a geographer, the city was more than intriguing, and I'd love to visit there again and take in more of its culture.
(In the pictures above, you'll notice the bright colors of some of these old buildings...an attempt to modernize such a historic city...other pictures include Christ Church Cathedral, Trinity College, and views of the River Liffey)
