      ... 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. It was a chain restaurant called Chiquita’s which tried its best to be a MexTex but it was a very comical attempt. I went back to my hostel to get ready for yet another tour. This time it was going to focus on Edinburgh’s dark side and tell me more about ...
