I've been back in Ballyvaughan for 5 days now. So far I have had 2 lovely evenings out in the pubs, moved into my amazing cottage (there is a fairy fort in the backyard), met all the nice new people, been up to Connemara, have come to wish I had done some real work on my thesis this summer, started on my art work, and caught the first of many terrible colds. The weather has been pretty bad and I am already using my SAD lights. I think that my roommate Chris and I are going to have a little potluck this weekend, but I will have to be feeling a bit better.
Here's some photo's from my Connemara trip (that's my housemate Chris asleep on the bus):
