First Impressions - The SIS Times
Taking in Clonmacnoise
After our first day spent visiting Clonmacnoise Monastic Settlement and driving to Western Ireland, we spent time this morning reflecting on our first impressions of the country.  Here's what the girls had to say:

Melissa:  "Everything is green.  They have so many cows...It's SO cold!"

Kelly:  "The day was good!  I liked the places we were and that everyone is respecting each other."

Johanna:  "Very green!  Everywhere cows.  Little sweet houses...The streets are horrible."

Larissa:  "My first impression of Ireland is that here is a lot of farming.  Almost everyone has a cow, sheep, or sometimes horses...The countryside is beautiful!"

Lena:  "I didn't feel so well because the streets are so bumpy...When we went on the ocean, it was very nice.  The air was fresh and I enjoyed it."

Pia:  "The nature in Ireland is so different to Germany...Overall, I am really impressed by Ireland and looking forward to the next days."
