Some years ago I worked in Belfast, Northern Ireland. It was a wonderful vibrant city like many capitals. In the time I spent in this wonderful country I tried to do as much site seeing as I could, although the weather was a little unkind. So when I went down to Bangor, unlike the Van Morrison song the sun didn't shine and I didn't neeed a bucket and spade.
When I read that it will be ten years on July 31 since the British Army left the country, I wanted to celebrate and remember the time I spent there.
