Leftovers from The Troubles
Our tour guide told us of the years of "the Troubles" in Northern Ireland. I was only 12 when things got really bad here, but he lived through them all.
Derry has changed a lot, he said, and most of the things that were bombed have been rebuilt, but if you look around in corners, you will see sights like this barbed wire fence that look so oddly out of place to us, but look so common to the people here that they must have forgotten to take them down.
