hope you got home safe. Was great to meet you and the child bride. Although I noticed your reticence when we mentioned that you'd only be a short trip away when you move to Wales.
'Erm, yeah'.

I drank Guinness in Switzerland once, and it was ever so slightly fizzy. I realised then that the notion of Guinness was in some ways a myth; it must be changed slightly to suit national tastes. This threw me into disarray: are us Britlanders the only ones who drink it flat, I wondered. Is the rest of the world lauging at us?

I have heard of Guinness. Best I can do.

Here's a fact for you.

Guinness is actually Welsh.

Or rather Arthur Guiness on a stopover on his way home ripped it off.

It was a drink called gwyn du - and he was staying in, I think, Llanfairfechan.

Pah. The Storehouse is shit. I could have told you that. Did you go on the Viking Splash tour though? They give you horned helmets to wear. Thrilling.

Elisa, I was shocked that anyone would want me to come back.

Lucy, so that's what that was! It wasn't mentioned in my shitty guide book, but now I have something to look forward to on my next visit.

I was fortunate enough to visit the Guinness Brewery at the tender age of 10. Needless to say I had yet discovered how wonderful Guinness can really be. My dad had a blast savoring the three ‘free’ pints he got at the end since neither my mother nor my sister enjoy beer, or is it a lager. I suspect that’s the only reason he brought the family along.

Thanks for the detailed comment on Mormon history. I suppose I should have paid closer attention to the historical placards around the city eh?
