A rough start, a good ending

The flight from New York was good: a nice Irish man as seatmate, good dinner with chicken and veggies and wine, and even a few hours of sleep. But I got off kilter with my meals and had a headache by the time we arrived. The car hire was excruciatingly slow, and I was quite sick by the time I got the car.
To shorten the story, I drove on the left and survived - praise the Lord! - a kind neighbor took me in and gave me some tea, then I slept until afternoon at the B&B.
Feeling much better, I caught the bus to the National Library and went straight to get the microfilm I had looked at in 2006. I wanted to fill in some more of the Parvin family. It's always hard to know how much to print (at 50 cents a page) and how much to come back later and write notes by hand.
I enjoyed a veggie crepe and coffee for supper, walked around Dublin centre a little and then caught the bus home.
