You Call This a Shower?

Ireland, baby!

In the summer of 2008 I led a group of students, former students, and chaperones on an educational tour of England, Ireland, and Wales. “You Call This a Shower?” is a series of blog posts aimed at capturing that experience in words and giving it to you to enjoy as we enjoyed the trip itself. While it was a lot of hard work, logistically, it was one of the best experiences of my life, and I truly invite you all into my world and thought processes at the time and afterward.
