Black Taxi Tour – and The Troubles

Black Taxi Tour of Belfast

We had visited the Peace Wall and Wall of Murals briefly as part of our tour.  But Thea and Steve and Andy and I had talked about taking a black taxi tour of Belfast that afternoon. These are tours that take place in the old London black taxis, driven by “survivors” of the Troubles, who tell their stories of their first hand experiences.  Part of me felt like we had already seen the Peace Wall etc, but part of me wanted to hear more stories. But we decided not to go. Then Dan mentioned that he and Jean were going and Andy and I decided to join them after all. And were we glad we did!

Breakfast. What was unusual about breakfast. Well, this is Ireland so oatmeal at the buffet was served with whiskey.
