We got back to the hotel a little while ago, but stopped in with some of the people from the tour to have a nightcap. They are such lovely people.

... Tom Riddle and others. We see the George Heriot School the inspiration for Hogwarts, the coffee shops she wrote the books in and learn some of Rowling's past. The boys listen enraptured, walking close to the tour guide staying in the front. By far the highlight of Edinburgh for them we're sure.
After the tour, we find an actual and authentic craft brewery: Brew Dog, that looks and tastes like home. We sip beers and eat pizza, listening the the boys talk excitedly about Harry ...
