    ... up talking about Foo Fighters and Nirvana and how we could both agree that Dave Grohl is one of the greatest drummers to grace our generation. When he arrived at the church, we joked about the homeless man sleeping on the steps. I think he said something along the lines of "welcome to scotland". People here are so generous to the homeless and I think it's really wonderful. Even if they are sleeping, I will see locals throw money on them. I walked up the steps ...

    ... I ended up staying at the museum until closing time, which was a bit longer than expected! After essentially being kicked out I wandered the streets for a bit, grabbed some dinner and made my way back to the hotel. Having an early one this evening at tomorrow is going to be a long day - the tour leaves at 8am and we're due to arrive back into the city at 8pm! Will be worth it though - the Scottish Highlands are simply amazing scenery-wise. ...

    ... telling myself to stop being such a wimp- until I see the same dazed, sick expression on everyone else's faces. We straggle along to a mediocre dinner at a forgettable restaurant, and then climb on the bus for the hour-long trip out to our hotel.

    Staying awake is almost impossible, but the countryside rolling past the windows is worth the effort. Once out of the city, the bus rambled through tiny villages with ...

    ... get to see. You cN see these in the photos both with the great views of the city and the small river photos. I had prearranged to meet Becky for dinner (my old neighbour from ashburton who happened to also be in edinburgh) so said goodbye to the Spanish girl and met up with Becky for dinner before we went and watched the opening game of the football World Cup between Brazil and Croatia. After that it was an early night as I needed to sort what my plans were for the next ...
