The University of Ulster Art College campus - on York Street.
This building, which until very recently was a crumbling mess, has just had a major facelift.

Loved to see your Dublin pictures. I was there in August 1985, but must confess it was the wettest summer in my life... One day I'll post some pictures on Blogtrotter!

I am smiling because of gmg`s comment.
I have been 11 months in Scotland with my three children and one husband and I must confess, that it was wettest and coldest 11 months in my life :)), cold was inside the house, where we had to live. And this was 1974-75 near Aberdeen, when all houses were rented to oil men in those days! I could write a book about those months, it could be a history to you young people.

It does look rather chilly... Never mind, rain and cold weather is on the way for us too, later in the week. Then you'll all get to see what Cape Town looks like when the sky isn't blue. :) Thanks for visiting our blog!

Well spotted! - after a glorious ten days or so of warm sunny weather, our climate has reverted to type...
When it rains here, it really rains!
Your experience in Aberdeen sounds unforgettable Mimmu! About 20 years ago my sister spent a few years living in Sweden and I remember visiting her in the depths of winter and being shocked by (1) the bone freezing cold outside (2) the wonderful warmth and design of the Swedish apartments. (My main impression from that visit was of all the gorgeous wooden floors everywhere - they are pretty standard here now, but in the 1980s everyone in the UK had hideous hairy carpets)

I love the glass walkway. It makes live so much easier to get from one building to the next.
