Trip synopsis (in an objective, minimalist fashion):
At the invitation of my brother (in the agape and storge sense) Gid Yutzy, the venerable hobo of Poland, Arkansas, and Pennsylvania, I flew to Ireland. We met in Dublin International. Our mission: to give our respective girlfriend the surprise of her life. So we did. With our mission accomplished, we spent the rest of our several days exploring Waterford and surrounding counties with our lasses and a group of people from the school in Poland. On Saturday, November 13, beside the Irish Sea, I asked Jean to marry me. She agreed. We are planning a June wedding. We are happy. Deeply happy.
Here are some pictures with objective, minimalist captions.
