For the first time in almost two weeks, I have an evening that I can relax into.
I felt really ill today with streaming eyes, and asthma. As soon as I got to my hotel room, it disappeared so it must be something on the bus or even in the environment. So I'll stack up the antihistamines and hit it head on.
I was too tired to finish my description of the recent Event in Ireland last night.
So I will head right into it again.
Yesterday I was able to view all of the exhibits in detail.
