Today is a Bank Holiday in Ireland, which means sadly we did not have any class! Judging by the state of Cork this morning when my flight landed, the Irish take Bank Holidays very, very seriously. Everything from the English Market to the Crawford Gallery was closed! My taxi driver back to Ballymaloe around 2 PM wagered that everyone was still asleep (I guess Irishmen take the night before a Bank Holiday seriously too).
Tomorrow we head into our sixth week of class, which culminates with a midterm technique exam and an herb/salad green identification. I guess I'll get to studying. Oriental Serifon. One down, a couple dozen to go.
