Hello from Dublin

Emily and I landed in Dublin this morning! We will be staying temporarily at, The Moorings / #53 / Fitzwilliam Quay / Dublin 4, until we find a more permanent place. It's a nice location, overlooking a feeder river running into Dublin Harbour and across from the Shelbourne Greyhound Stadium (also serving as a park for ducks, geese and gulls during the day). We start our orientation and housing search tomorrow (Thanksgiving) - so wish us luck. 

The flight over was great: the most helpful United ticket agent on the planet helped us get our bags over (be sure to ask Emily about her 82 lb bag), napped for most of the afternoon, walked around D4 this evening and ate at Ely HQ (restaurant with fantastic service and food) and are now watching the greyhound races from our balcony.
