We took the bus at Merrion Square to go shopping at the recently opened Dublin store of IKEA. Our bus journey took us through an extremely dodgy area with walled-up skyscrapers; I had to think of the movie Into the West; even horses were grazing there!
It was quite a contrast when we finally entered the IKEA building and walked between hundreds of people (too many children!) from one showroom to the other. Just like at home. Awesome!
Of course we couldn't resist to buy some candles and Indira... The smell when walking to the check-out points through the damp remembered me of our Ikea, Praktiker and Obi; fresh wood and dust. Oh, I certainly loved putting my apartment together and I absolutely crave to do it again, for a new one!
