Belfast has made it’s way into the news recently again for it’s old antics.
Rebel fighting broke out in the capital city.
When CTA and I were there we also had a run in with these same rebels.
We opened up our Belfast trip with a walk around the museum of the Irish Rebels. We saw the weapons they used, the propaganda they used, the pictures and stories of the Easter Rebellion, and most importantly saw the long list of names of people who died in the confrontations.
From there we travelled from place to place seeing beautiful buildings covered in brown paint and dirt. This was because during World War II they covered their white government buildings in paint and mud to avoid German bombings.
Finally, we came across the Titanic Museum, which is where Northern Ireland took the cake for the most dangerous place we went. Bomb threat. Thankfully, it was only a threat, but it’s sad to see that tensions are still so high.
