Today we visited a new country "NORTHERN IRELAND".
We left the hotel early and went on our way to Derry, Londonderry County, Northern Ireland. Very exciting to be in a country where we would not be able to enter even 10 years ago.
We really learned a lot about the history of the "troubles".
We then visited St. Columb's cathedral, an incredible cathedral in the center of Derry.
After the cathedral along the wall that surrounds Derry we then visited the tower museum and were given and in depth tour regarding the seige and the peace talks.
On to the Guild Hall in Derry where Liam Neilson began his theatrical career. After that we met the coach for a trip to Glenveagh National Park lies in the heart of the Derryveagh Mountains in the north-west of Co. DonegalGlenveagh National Park lies in the heart of the Derryveagh Mountains in the north-west of Co. Donegal. It was a beutiful vsiit for lunch and some recreation. The grounds were amazing and most of the students had a nice long walk back to the coach along the river Swilly.
Back at the hotel now, an inpromptu performance from our incredible kids with numbers from the Wiz and Godspell, dinner, and a relaxing evening before our exciting visit tomorrow to the Giant's Causeway.
