  9. 9. A page from Laura Coppetti’s diary <ul><li> 28/11/2012 </li></ul><ul><li>Dear diary, </li></ul><ul><li>Today, Friday 26th, is the last day in Dublin. We have had a good week, but I am really happy to go back home. </li></ul><ul><li>But before leaving we have to visit again Dublin to see the Castle. It has only a tower and a small palace left from the medieval castle. It seems just a manor house, in fact the guide told us that the castle was rebuilt. But it is interesting anyway. </li></ul><ul><li>Then we had the last fifty-five minutes to go shopping. I bought everything the other days so I sent my last postcards and I walked quietly, admiring the road. It was already decorated for Christmas. I hated it because I feel sad and homesick. After that we returned to Bray. </li></ul><ul><li>The program for the evening was a fast dinner and the dances. But I spent the time taking photos, because I don’t like dancing. </li></ul><ul><li>When we returned home, we had to pack and then we finally slept for two hours, because our pick up was scheduled at a 3.15 a.m.! </li></ul><ul><li>Laura </li></ul>

What a wonderful view! </li></ul><ul><li>After that we caught the Dart at 1.00 p.m to go to Dublin where today we have visited the famous Guinness Storehouse: seven floors and on the last one we had a beautiful view of the town, but unfortunately we couldn't drink any beer! </li></ul><ul><li>Finally, we took the bus to go to Grafton Street, where there is the statue of Molly Malone that we studied at school, and we went shopping in the big shops. At around 7.00 p.m we arrived at home where &quot;fish and chips&quot; was waiting for us! </li></ul><ul><li>We really had a great time!! </li></ul><ul><li>Sara </li></ul>
