Ireland


Dublin, Ireland

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

I cleaned some windows at a hostel, 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 the new boss.

Early that September, I went to Kilkenny via Galway.
