      Today was one of those days where all you want to do is stay inside all rugged up in your pjs where it is warm and dry. We have snow, wind and rain so the morning was spent in my pjs before venturing out later in the day.

      ... It is in the old city main Street, and is one of the old tenement buildings which are a major part of Edinburgh's history. I spent several hours wandering around, got my bearings, went on an underground tour, and skimmed through two small museums.
