          ... wilderness of the world, it is of little wonder that, when the allotted time comes to step back into the pen, you find you no longer quite fit within the confines of it. And this idea about the nebulous nature of returning was wonderfully, if convolutedly, encapsulated by the great James Joyce when he wrote Ulysses. "An unsatisfactory equation between an exodus and return in time through reversible space and an exodus and return in space through irreversible ...

          Long long day in the air. Up at 5.30am, breakfast and out to airport. Everything lovely and smooth as we have come to expect and admire. I thought the motto/vision statement on the monitor at Immigration summed it up... 'Narita Immigration will be side by side with your heart'. Not usual experience of such departments. Luthhansa were good, the flight was another 10+ hours ...

Of course it rained while I was there and then the sun came out and then it rained again. It was also windy, ...

          ... an early alarm the boys wake up at 6:20am. We get ready, some f our clothes having miraculously dried, and take the city bus to the Old City and make it to Edinburgh castle right before they open at 9:30am. We arrive at 9:15 and there is already a crowd forming. We are guided into the ticket line, 3 families back; relieved for getting here early.

          The castle is enormous and so impressive, built atop volcanic rock; something Kaeleb becomes very excited about upon ...

          ... and a 360 walk around balcony. I just wanted to keep going to keep the surprise fresh. The steps got narrower and narrower as we went up, we laughed because Carson could barley fit, and we couldn't imagine anyone slightly bigger than him making it at all. The top was unreal. The castle in the distance, surrounded with buildings and gardens, the ocean to our other side, I could even see more islands in the distance. After a long journey we enjoyed the view ...
