    A very grey day in Edinburgh not really cold but no rain, sounds like a typical British weather report. Porridge for breakfast ready for Scotland. We caught the HOHO bus and were a little disappointed with the commentary and how short the tour was. They could have expanded the tour as there is so much more to see. We got off at Holyroodhouse Palace and did the audio tour. The section on ...

    ... stadium-like seating, but this was not like any halftime show I've ever seen. First, Edinburgh Castle is a massive gray stone backdrop on which they shine colored lights in various patterns to highlight the particular act or band. Secondly, there is a distinct multi-cultural aspect to the show as musical and dancing groups from around the world performed. There were Zulu warriors from Africa, Maori dancers from ...

    ... city and were able to see the cannon go off from the Edinburgh Castle at 1pm. It was much quieter than we thought it would be.

    Arthur's seat was muddy and slippery. I had to take my time because I did not have time to change into my sneakers and the boots I was wearing had little tread.

    ... on as normal for a while after that with work and whatnot until we had a flurry of Antipodean visitors - Always good to catch up with a face from home! Anna Wallace turned up for a quick overnight visit to Edinburgh on her way to London from Skye. We met up with her and went for some dinner and drinks and another Free show (was ok - definitely getting the hit and miss with the free comics).

    Anna went on her way and we had a few days off before Celine and ...
