    One Week Down

    A travel blog entry by infinitytheatre on Aug 07, 2014

    Well we have been here a week, some of us have been here longer.
    Everyone has settled in very nicely and begun to feel comfortable. It is hard not to feel welcome in this city that very much feels like a village. There is always an air of excitement everywhere you go because you are surrounded by artists and they are all hopeful, excited to show you their craft. The other day Steve, I and Zach ...

    ... tail. This one was carrying a very long stick in its beak and was jumping from ledge to ledge to the top of the roof of a house where the chimneys were. I thought they must be building a nest up there. But no. Once it got to the top - near the chimney pipes, it flew down, across the street to the park where there was a very large tree. Ah!

    James asked for volunteers at the Mercat Cross. Dad, of course, eagerly ran up there. Unbeknownst ...

    ... to get to the higher ground and thus a better view, I would need to travel down and connect to a different path. I soon discovered that my water bottle had not been filled up for the day, and I now was blessed with the knowledge that I would have no liquid relief when I arrived at the summit. This was to be a real problem, since I had been sick since yesterday, and the climbing up the mountain was taxing me greatly. I pressed on, because of either my stubbornness ...

    I hope everyone has had some awesome New Years celebrations. I spent my night at a pub on the royal mile and then headed off to the Edinburgh Hogmanay Street Party which is where I saw massive crowds like I have never in my life. If I end up tracking down some of the photos from the people I was with I will definitely post and share.
