Walking into the bed and breakfast this morning we were greeted by the landowners with smiles and laughter. We sat and talked to the nice lady who took our orders and brought us our coffee which was the best I have had in Ireland so far. The breakfast was great and filled everyone up as expected. At 9:45 we walked over to the Free Derry Museum where John Kelly, a man affected first hand by Bloody Sunday, gave us an explanation about what happened and how he was affected. Hearing his side of the story gave us all a different perspective of what we had learned throughout the year. I personally learned a lot more about this important event just by walking through the museum.
Later we all had some free time so me and a couple other guys decided to walk along the wall that surrounds the city. We gathered up at our next location, The Tower Museum. The museum explained how Derry came to be as well as other interesting facts about
the growth of Ireland. The best part is at the very top of the tower where there is a view that allows you to see miles and miles away. There was also an outside viewing area but
unfortunately we could not walk outside because of the weather. After we had explored the museum we had the rest of the day off. To end the day me and a group of people watched the movie Independence Day: Resurgence. Overall the day was packed with very interesting sights that we were able to see which allowed us to expand our knowledge of Ireland.
