It feels good to have been at the Galway office today. I got to meet/see again many of my Irish co-workers.
It’s a good atmosphere there. We made plans for initial phase of the domain migration and we’re pushing that part through this evening.
We’ll see how it went when we get in tomorrow morning.
Two of the lads took me to a place called Shambo’s that features sandwiches served on unique Shamrock shaped focaccia or wholemeal breads.
It’s not a tourist place. This one was located in very industrial area and it was full of working class and professional type people obviously out on their lunch break.
That didn’t stop me from photographing my lunch before chowing down, though!
It was quite yummy!
After work today I decided it was time to have my official first Guinness in Ireland. I’d heard all the stories about how Guinness tastes soooooo much better in Ireland and I wanted to see for myself, especially since I am not all that fond of Guinness in the first place.
Owen, Niall and Paul all unanimously agreed that Murphy’s Pub was the place to go for this so I wandered down toward the river to find it.
It wasn’t much trouble and went in and had a seat at the bar and placed my order with the bartender.
And I, being the camera toting dufus I am, captured the momentous beer for posterity.
Let me state for the record that it is absolutely true. This Guinness tasted fantastic! Smooth and not bitter like I recall my American experiences.
I see a few more pints in my immediate future….
