Enter the Minefield


Enter the Minefield

I spent the last three days touring the cheery city of Belfast and the always magical Londonderry, which is also known as the Disneyland of Northern Ireland.
It's amazing to actually be there, after visiting vicariously through Google images, and really see how politically the place is. The streets and people are absolutely soaked with political baggage, so much that you can't stop and ask for directions without being hit with the force of it all.
It seems that everything about Northern Ireland is a political minefield. I couldn't even buy a souvenir for Noam without accident setting one off.
