"To be a woman is something so strange, so confusing and so complicated that only a woman could put up with it." -- Kierkegaard

252--Ireland: Connemara

cherie writes: Three friends and I decided to take a road trip in Ireland to Connemara. It's a place where time stands still, lakes reflect the mountains like mirrors and stone castles stand proud surviving centuries of struggles with the feirce Irish elements.

Lindsay, Kat, Peter and I stayed in an old monastery and warmed ourselves with local hospitality (called Guinness). During the days we explored Ireland's rugged tranquility.
