Max’s blog – Day 8

Today I went to Newgrange, its a giant mound in the ground which is 5000 years old. The car trip was 1 1/2 hours long and when we got there, there was a sign saying, “Be warned, thieves operate in this area?” What in the hell! We went into the visitor centre and got our tickets. They weren’t expensive but the food there was expensive all right, anyway, we went to the bus stop and got picked up, we left off to Knowth, a giant, 150 meter mound in the ground.

It was pretty cool but it got a bit boring.

Oh, and did I mention I have a pet penguin. his name is penguino-bro.

He is a blue penguin rubber. he blocked off the roof to the Newgrange mound. there was a hole above the entrance which allows a beam of light to travel in 3 days before the winter solstice, to 2 days after it. the light lights up the room in the centre.

After we went there we hopped back on the bus. we went back to the car park, and drove of to a town called Navan, we had some pizza and a float (A Spider!) then we went home and I wrote this blog! the end!
