The pics if anyones bored or interested enough to view.

I was suprised that there seems to be a Guiness following. The wine offsales are cool.

Awesome pictures Orfy, thanks for sharing your holiday with us.

I loved the pics of the markets, sunsets, and architecture.

I see you found some corney kegs over there as well as Hefe. Some things are universal.

Now, the question: Which of these gentlemen are YOU?

So:

No ale

No mermaids

Nice old buildings though.

Did you not spot the pints of Guiness?
pricey though. 4.50 a pint.

Wine from 0.50 a glass.

Yes, I did see the Guiness. I'd never seen the tropical style Guiness pint glasses before.
