Arthur's Day!

Yesterday was Arthur's Day, a day to raise a glass of Guinness to Arthur, the creator of Guinness.  I think, however, that this is really just a Guinness marketing ploy and that Arthur's Day has only been celebrated the last two years.  At any rate, I got a free pint of Guinness at O'Rourke's (and ordered some more Banoffee) and had a fun time.

What wasn't so fun was sitting in the immigration office all day long.  I arrived at 8 AM and the line (the queue) was already stretched around the outside of the building.  Fortunately, I was given a number, 167, and told to come back at 11:00.  I went and grabbed some tea, read some Joyce, and wandered up and down the streets looking at shops that weren't open.  I finally got my student visa at 2:30.  So, the free Guinness was certainly a nice treat at the end of a very long day.

Tonight: Culture night!
