So it rains here, too, apparently.
We had another huge 12-hour sleep last night, and woke up this morning super excited to head to the markets and find some treats. Unfortunately, the intense WW2-style blackout curtains in our room prevented us from seeing the inclement weather until we got down to our coffee in the kitchen.
Oh well. I asked the girl behind the desk, “are we going to hate our lives if we go to Paddy’s Market in the rain?”
“Uh, well, it’s all indoors, so I’d doubt it.”
It’s kind of like an enormous indoor flea market with LOTS of crap, but some cheap souvenirs and a veggie market. We bought stuff to make omelettes for dinner tonight, and made our way back toward the hostel. We hadn’t made it far before we saw a huge theatre with WICKED posters all over it – but the Box Office prices were foolish, so we opted out.
As we climbed up the narrow stone steps into The Rocks, we stumbled upon yet another market – The Rocks has a sort of high-end outdoor market on the weekends. We had already had our fill of marketing, but we took a lap, and I found candy. Win.
We’re thinking about the zoo tomorrow (thanks, Cailin!) but it’s KIND OF expensive, so we’re looking for alternatives as well. More soon! Much love.
