Yesterday I had a party with the people who just came to Cork from Russia, and it made me recall my first time in Ireland, so I found first pictures I took in Cork.
Everything was so interesting and uncommon! People were unusual – smiling, saying hi when you pass by on the streets. Food was interesting and new – after discovering “Burger king” I didn’t stop and found some very nice small cafes with Irish food, that I like now.
The way they build houses here was or really unusual with the entrance on the second floor with a long stairs connecting the entrance to the ground, or 10-20 same houses in a row like someone copy pasted them. To be honest, I didn’t know what terraced house was before I came here. I remember I googled something like “housing in Ireland” to find out what detached, semi-detached and linked houses were )
In general the way Cork is built is not something I’ve seen much before – small city center and huge residential areas full with small houses, backyards and lawns.
