the final chapter:
5:42 am
watching the lights on the coast get closer. I got a little sleep, read my silly magazine, listened to my music, escaped the crying baby. now, waiting to get off the ferry I feel awake, ready for Dublin.


When we got off the ferry (on the bus) we were boarded by customs, when questioned I knew to say I was visiting as a tourist for the day and as aresult, in my passport was written "day visit" in scrawling handwriting on a random page. no country, no date.

However, the black family from some other country was not so lucky and, even though they were traveling through Dublin to get to Belfast, another part of the UK,(just like me) they were kicked off the bus. The last I saw of them was the father angrily gazing up at the bus from the police car which was escorting them out of the country.
I am confused why I am allowed into this EU country and they are not, Why they needed a special visa to enter, and I did not, It doesn't seem fair. why are they more likely to be sneaking into Ireland than me?
my visit to early morning Dublin was a nice way to return to the island. I was home in Derry by lunchtime and packing to move to Belfast.
