I arrived with hours to spare and so had a great opportunity to see some of the sights of Dublin. Here the main GPO (general Post Office) in the centre of Dublin including the bullet holes in the columns from the uprising in the early 1900's.
With so much time to spare I was also able to go to Trinity college (pic below) and see the book of Kells (pic right), one of the 1st ever copies of the Scriptures to be bound like a book that we use today. It is over 1000 years old and probably written sometime in the 9th century.
Anyway, eventually the history lesson was over for the day and it was time to go and be poked and prodded by the doctor. Most medicals are done and dusted that day and if successful you walk away with a temporary medical until the full one arrives in the post. Well the good news is that I did pass everything at the medical but the bad news is that as this is my 1st Australian medical the rules are slightly different. Before I can get my certificate, I need to see a few specialists for eyesight and hearing and this takes time to setup. Unfortunately I didn't find this out until the dust was blown off the medical regulations when i got down there and it seems I will have another day in Dublin in about 2 weeks time. Hmmn, yet another delay.
Thanks to all who where praying during this time, your services will be required once again.
