2019 Northern Ireland RIOT 2 Update 1
Posted: Sunday, June 09, 2019
Day one really felt like day one and two. No one is really sure what time, or day, it is right now.
The team met up at the airport on Friday afternoon. After a smooth arrival and check-in, the 24 of us found our gate with plenty of time to get settled before boarding the flight to Dublin.
We arrived in Dublin at 7am on Saturday met up with Richie, who runs the Riot youth center and made our way from Dublin (in the Republic of Ireland) to Dundrum (in Northern Ireland). The goal for the day: beat jet lag and stay awake. For the most part we were all successful. We spent the day exploring the coast, learning about Riot’s work in the community, and getting to know one another.
By the time started to set, we were ready to call it a day (days?) and get some much needed sleep.
