Sonsón Antioquia Colombia - 22nd November 2017


A nice bottle of Rum to get me into the mood.

Morcilla (Black Pudding), Typical high calorie Colombian food.

I love this wall by artist "Pablo Jamarillo"

Pink helped a local farmer collect the milk on horse-back

Not my favorite place in Sonsón. I am afraid of the dentist!

I found the perfect place to make new friends.

Agh! now I have to settle my bill.

In the foundry

A Spanish Conquistador uniform - The armpit is a little smelly!

La Casa de los Abuelos (Grandparents house)

Think I will print some business cards.

Back to School, I need to learn the history of  Sonsón

Eire - 28th May 2017

Wine or Whine?

Pink made a friend at the house previously owned by Oscar Wildes family.

Home for stray friends

mmm Steak

Flor at the Irish Dancing show. He could not dance as his legs are too short

 

Ferry Crossing at Portaferry

Hi girls, do you come here often?

My heroes Laurel and Hardy

Should I go for the big one or the 3 small ones? What a dilemma.

Now that is my car

 

 

 

The old Mill in Sligo

Now this is an Irish Coffee!
 


Dressed in style for the Irish Music

 

Great Irish Food

Northern Ireland - 22nd May 2017

First some Gin, then off to find the Guiness

Irish Gin ! Have to say I like it.

Tourist route along the river

I think I deserve another Gin after that walk

Now this is a great Gin. Hic!

Relaxing in the Belfast Jazz Bar.

Love the decor

Local beech on the Irish Sea. Whew the seaweed smells.

A little prossecco to keep me going.

Live tradtiional Irish music. I could get to like this.

As always, I love these old cars. Must get one of my own one of these days

An old Irish Castle.

The very North of Ireland. Shame it was raining.

Malin Head. The farthest North you can go before falling into the sea.

Need a warm coffee after Malin Head. Very windy and wet

I was scared after seeing this ghost ship

Fun with the sea lions.


Outside the Titanic Museum in Belfast

Mussels oh Mussels alive alive-o

A small fishing village

Not used to this, a 2km walk just to get there, then I have to come back!

Wild Garlic growing along the river bank. Smells great.

At last Cranney Falls. Did I say I have to walk back 2km! :-(

The river at Ballycastle

Ballycastle Beech


On my way to the Giant's Causeway

Still on my way to the Giant's Causeway (Should have taken the bus)

Got here at last, and Wow - It's spectacular

What a day, still should have used the bus though

Can you see the Seal. Raithlan Island is amazing

Wet day on the beech

Some visitors from the USA in the car. I recommended places to go.

Fishing vessels. Just love fresh sea food

Last pic in Northern Ireland before I go to Eire
