    ... classics that they do in NZ and Canada apparently. We were there until they closed at 1 am and then made our way to an insane dance club that had 5 different bars in the once complex all with different types of music playing in each and stayed there until they closed a few hours later too. After a very slow walk home after a required pit stop looking for food we ended up at MacDonald and by the time we made it home the sun was already starting to come ...

    but not to the airport ...

I would have hated to storm it. The castle is still used to house some military, and every day at one o'clock they fire a cannon to mark the time. We got to see the cannon being fired, along with the Scottish Crown Jewels, the stone of destiny, and marvelous views. After visiting ...

    ... to much other than trundling and eating while in Edinburgh but it was gooooodd! Michaela One second, we did actually participate in one wee touristy activity, and in true Michaela and Kathryn fashion it was of course an underground tour (our 3rd for the trip). But not just any underground tour, it was a Terror Tour, with the promise of their most darkest and frightening stories, told by our very excitable little tour guide dressed in a huge dark cloak. Needless to say I was ...
