David was quite keen to watch Scotland vs. France rugby match on TV with his dad, which gave Maria an "opportunity" to sort the bags out for Glasgow. On the upside, the 'bar' opened early for kickoff but on the downside, Scotland lost the game in the last minute.

... again, I was really glad I was not doing the driving. I still look the opposite way when crossing the road – although I continue to look BOTH ways regardless. So I do not want to even attempt to drive here!!! Haha.

We returned to Edinburgh at about 6 p.m. - just in time for dinner. Some people from the tour decided to go to a pub to eat and of course, drink! We found a pub along the Royal Mile. The haggis was pretty ...
