THE PRICK WITH THE STICK:
So much to say, and so little time. We leave Dublin tomorrow for 'The
Rebel City' Cork. It's amazing to be in a country where I don't have to automatically spell my last name every time I say it. Dublin is full of monuments, most of them to literary figures. My favourite so far is the Oscar Wilde monument. The "political monuments" in this city are all to enemies of the previous world empire, that of the British. But, as I have said, every monument in this city has its nickname. The monument to writer James Joyce off O'Connell Street pictured here has been affectionately dubbed "the prick with the stick".
Much more later,
