This morning, I made pancakes for my apartment, but they turned out more like crepes with the Irish pancake mix. Then, this afternoon, I made my box of Macaroni & Cheese, and we all shared in the cheesiness and American goodness of food from home along with a liter of Coca-Cola. Right now, we're all just hanging out watching movies and eating popcorn. On Thursday night we're going to have a sleepover with all 20 girls in the FISP program in my apartment. That should be a blast! And tonight we're grilling fish fresh off the boat. I'm not really a big fan of fish, but if I'm ever going to try it, Galway is the place. Goodbye for now!

Popcorn and Pancakes
Today, we've just been relaxing at the apartment. Yesterday, I got to go downtown Galway shopping in the tiny Irish stores. It was a lot of fun to wander through the pedestrian-only part of town. My friend Kate Meredith was extremely excited to find a Polish store there that sold her favorite Polish juice. She spent the summer in Poland on a mission trip, so she was nearly sprinted through the mall when she saw the sign for the store.
