Student Dorms

On Monday May 28th it was time for me to move from my hostel to the student apartments. The rest of the Pitt in Dublin students would be arriving. I left my hostel in Smithfield Square and crossed the Liffey, the river that splits Dublin. For the remainder of the program, before I undertake more independent travel and hostel living, I will be living in a student housing complex. The apartments are great! The rooms and living area are spacious. The students who occupy the blocks surrounding us are all students from different parts of the world. It is like living in the hostel but with much more space and a private bedroom.

The pictures below are from around the apartment complex.

 I must admit I still haven't fully unpacked.

 The apartments are on the bottom of a big hill. This is what I walk up every morning to get to class.

 That blue box is actually a really good coffee place.

 These stairs are at the top of the hill across from the colorful picnic tables. I like the architecture a lot.
