Belfast, and all of Northern Ireland, has come a very long way in a very short period of time. In the not so distant past, I would never have considered visiting the capital of Northern Ireland; memories of past violence still too vivid. Those days are long over though and today Belfast has emerged as one of the hottest travel destinations in the world. The city of Belfast is colorful and dynamic, seemingly in a state of progress and upward mobility. On my recent visit there I had yet another opportunity to explore the city center, discovering even more great examples of street art. So much more than a nuisance, these artworks in most cases are keen social commentary, a reflection of where the city has been and where it is going.
