    ... we opt for lunch in the Royal Tea Room and find the staff unbelievably pleasant, as if we are royalty ourselves. As Ann and I cannot decide on our order, our waitress actually asks us permission to excuse herself until we are ready to decide on our menu choice! Our meal is not as pricey as I would have expected for this Royal setting ..we opt for the salmon tea sandwiches and cauliflower soup of the day with a tart UK specialty lemonade that is DIVINE! After lunch ...

    ... eased up and as the winter sets in, the icy waters will have all but stopped flowing, until the Spring melt starts to fill it again. Our time in Edinburgh was too short.

It was very pretty but we didn't see much of anything there. After another long bus ride we ...

    ... Scotland for me. So, I was happy to be seeing my sister, meeting Andrew, and
    fattening up my wallet.

    I arrived at the airport in Edinburgh ready to see
    Scotland. I had to buy a bus ticket into downtown Edinburgh, then walk to my
    hostel. Oh the best laid plans...

    It took me a while to figure out what street I
    was even on, because street labels are mounted on the sides of buildings, not
