... I ate at a Mexican restaurant. It’s a little funny to eat on your own, although I’ve done it before. I looked through my maps and pictures but then found myself just sitting there gazing around the place.

The puzzle for me is why Elizabeth, such a supporter of hereditary accession, vehemently refused to marry and to have her own children! Was there something going on under those voluminous skirts we still don’t know about!

Anyway, all that to say that the story all came together for me in this palace that was built ...

... Rosé Wine that knocked me on my ass, don't know if it was the altitude or the percent of alcohol, but a mouse could have drank me under the table that night. Our last tour of the night was a 'scary' tour of the underground vaults that lay beneath the city. In the early days of Edinburgh there used to be a bridge with 19 arches spanning across the city for traders. It was later filled in underneath and used as living space for the incredibly poor. The tour guide told ...
