Come here to find out the daily blog assignment
Feel free to write about anything related to today's events for your blog. If you want something to start you off, consider one of these themes:
1. Boyne Valley: How do the monolithic structures of the Boyne Valley (Knowth, in particular) relate to pre-history in Hawaii? What are the similarities and differences between the structures made in these two cultures? What about the art? What do you think it means? How does it compare to Hawaiian art (e.g., petroglyphs)? What aspects are already familiar to you? What aspects different?
2. Riding the bus and the Irish landscape. How does this landscape compare to that of Hawaii? What aspects of it are culturally driven? What aspects drive the culture? What do you think about when observing this landscape?
3. Music. Many of you listened to the melded sounds of Irish flute and Hawaiian ukulele in the evening. Describe the experience and your understanding of the importance of music to the Irish and Hawaiian cultures. What aspects of the evening were your favorite and why?
