Ireland


Dublin, Ireland
I had 5000 pesetas when I got to Dublin airport in June of 2001.

I cleaned some windows at a hostel, got a loan from my brother, and got a job nearby. I shared a room for a while; quit my job to take another, got evicted before payday, and lived in a room supplied by my new boss.

Early that September, I went to Kilkenny via Galway.
