Ruby Princess, Belfast, Northern Ireland, Sunday, August 31, 2014

We spent 5 hours in this McDonald's, blogging!!!  Having been to Belfast a few weeks, we tried to "catch up" with good wifi.  We saw only this one street in downtown Belfast.  We were going to take a "Hop on, Hop off" when we finished, but the wait was too long.  The REASON the wait was too long:  there was a riot early this a.m.  Three people were shot and protesters/rioters were still active and the "water cannon" (trucks with water hoses) had been called out to disperse the crowd.  Similar to our night in Belfast a few weeks ago.  We are fine with staying in the McD's and then going back to the ship.

One of our favorite pastimes, trading $1 bills between winners!
