We arrived in Shannon at 7:00am local time and 1:00am home time. It is raining and about 50 degrees here. From what I could see from the plane, it is very green. I don't think I have ever seen land so green. I also already saw some sheep. So, basically Ireland from the window of plane is exactly what you would expect.
There were several UMKC students on the flight with me so now we are all together in the airport waiting to meet up with the rest of the program. We will travel by bus to Dingle where we will be staying for ten days. We will be staying in cottages where we get our own rooms, but share common spaces. We have kitchens, so if the TSA hasn't taken my spices, I will be doing some cooking.
Classes start tomorrow, so hopefully I will be over the jet lag by then.
I don't know if I will have wifi at the cottages. If I do I will try to post again once I'm settled.
