JamesJoyceLand

That's sort of what it feels like here. Of course, I'm on a media preview of ReJoyce 2004, Dublin's 100th Bloomsday festival, so that probably accounts for all the Joyceania.

Anyway, I was glad to make it up to the North side of Dublin today, where things are a little more real and a little less GuinnessVille. (The river Liffey separates the poorer North from the richer South.) Was given a frenetic tour by Alex Singer, former McGill Dailyite, now a Medical Student at University College Dublin and writer at the University Observer.

Must run off now. Just wanted to make a quick entry before heading off to 15 Usher's Island, the house where Joyce set his short story The Dead.
