Subject: Re: Cycling in Ireland
Hi Sarah ;)

Don't take it too seriously what I will tell you - but as always, there is a grain of truth in it ;)

When I arrived in Dublin at the airport and took a taxi to the inner town the taxi driver looked at me. Thoroughly. Did not say a word first. We began the drive. He looked over again. And finally asked - what will you do here? I answered I would do a tour thru Ireland. Silence again. Will you do that with a bicycle? I said no. With a car. Suddenly the ice was broken, we chatted along. But the first thing he told me was how craaaaazzzzyyyy those tourists are who come to rainy Ireland to ride on a BICYCLE there!!!! lol

(four days of rain within a bit over 3 weeks, mainly September)
