16 June 2016: Sunday Bloody Sunday
Today we needed to make up some lost time and unfortunately cut out a few planned stops on our way to Londonderry in Northern Ireland, part of the United Kingdom. We were surprised to find little fanfare, not even a sign, as we crossed into Northern Ireland. After checking into our hotel, we ate dinner and explored Londonderry briefly. Known as the Walled City, it sits near the mouth of the River Foyle. Londonderry / Derry is where Bloody Sunday (aka Bogside Massacre) took place. The Peace Bridge crosses the Foyle at the bottom of the hill from the center of town. It connects two areas of town that are still politically divided.
