Thanks to Amy for the River challenge.
If you ever get to visit Doha, Qatar, then you must pay a visit to Villagio Mall. The mall has got a river inside! And that’s not all. You can also take a gondola ride through a section of the mall.
Sorry for the poor quality pics. MB is just too tired to search for better ones.
But you get the picture!

If you want a chilled relaxing evening in Moscow, MB can highly recommend a cruise on the Moscow River. Food, of a very high quality, and alcohol are available in abundance. MB particularly enjoyed a few goblets of damn fine Russian vodka. When in Russia! The tickets can be bought online and one must then arrive at the river pier next to the Radisson Hotel at the appropriate time.
The historical buildings are memorable enough during daylight hours but are truly spectacular under the night lights and golden-hour twilight.
Herewith some of MBs favourites shots from the trip:

The city of Limerick lies on the Shannon & Abbey Rivers in Ireland’s south-west, 12 miles from HX, give or take. It dates from Viking days, circa 800 AD, although there were older settlements in the locality. The architecture is primarily Georgian, with many buildings built from red brick and containing impressive Georgian-style doorways. The population is approximately 100,000, making it the Nr 3 city in Ireland. Sport is huge; with hurling, soccer and rugby (in particular) to the fore. Read More
