We met the Lord Mayor of Belfast today. City Hall was so beautiful. It was built with three different kinds of marble. We went to a big room to wait for the mayor to come in. We were served tea in the most expensive looking teacups I have ever seen. My hands kept shaking and you could hear the glass clanking together. I fortunately was not the only one that was having that issue. A young man walked into the room and I remember thinking, “When is the mayor going to come in here?” It actually was the mayor. He is the youngest mayor at 26. He was entertaining and interesting to listen to. He spoke about how he tried to keep the office at City Hall neutral. He decorated his office with both Protestant and Catholic items, even though he was a Catholic. He thought it was important to represent everyone. He also would only be in office for two more weeks because mayors only serve for one year. He tried to do a lot while in office for a short period of time. After meeting with him we went on a tour of City Hall which was really interesting.
