Ireland Interlude

I love Ireland.

Lots of castles, cathedrals, old towns, water stained by peat, hills, sheep, and one magnificent cave.  Weirdly, I love black pudding, and white pudding isn't bad either.  I feel like the only one who isn't local that likes it.  Staying at B&B establishments has been great.  Everyone has been kind and friendly.  
Driving on the left, not so much, but we're likely to survive the experience.
More later, when it's not, er, late.

I am insanely jealous. What is white pudding?

It reminds me of a finely ground meat sausage (so it has no gristle) with oatmeal, but good oatmeal, not the rolled flakes. Here's a wikipedia article:
There's a hint of allspice or maybe cinnamon in it, otherwise it has a very mild flavor, and is not at all greasy.

I LOVED black pudding when I was in London! Never tried the white one, though...

I'm STILL greeeeeeeeen!
