(There didnít seem to be anyone waiting for me!)
It wasnít asking too much to expect someone to turn up, was it? Perhaps it would be Colm from Bridgestone or a member of staff from the Gerry Ryan Show? They had promised they would. Confident that someone would be there, I emerged from the car deck and stood on Irish ground at last. Looking around there wasnít a soul to be seen. I thought that they might be out of sight behind one of the nearby containers so I went and had a look. There was no one there either. What had happened? Having pedalled so far, I was quite naturally saddened at the prospect. I felt wretched but at least both feet were on Irish soil. That was the single most important thing, I decided, as I stamped down on the ground repeatedly with both feet. It might have been asphalt, but I kicked and kicked, my head in the clouds.
