Studying Abroad next semester: London or Dublin? Help!
Ok so I'm in university now. And next year I am considering going abroad to Europe to study for a semester. I have narrowed it down to two countries: England and Ireland (the accents make me weak). Of course I'll be opting to study at their respective capitals. I would love to experience Londo and because it is such a big city it would have more ethnic minorities (which is what I am) and would therefore make for a more comfortable living for me. It would just be strange being the fifth non-white person in a city, wouldn't you think? That's kinda my prob with Ireland. A few of my friends who are Irish and have been to Dublin say that it is pretty homogenous in that there aren't that many non-white peoples. I don't have a problem with that per se but I'm just not familiar with the cultural and social perspective of the Irish regarding foreigners. And btw, I saw the movie Cowboys and Angels which is set in Ireland and there are A LOT OF HOT IRISH MEN!!! Some of 'em better be gay because I plan on having a lot sex while I'm away. Anyway, if anyone here is Irish or can shed some light on what happens in good ol' Dublin reply and help me out.
