    ... Edinburgh and I really recommend it. There are also ghost walks through the old closes of Edinburgh and underground dungeons from the pas that I have heard are really fantastic but not for the faint hearted (like me!) Just be prepared for Scotland's infamous and unpredictable weather conditions, especially when on the open top bus! Saying that this summer in Edinburgh has actually had its sunny spells!

They really have their act together. I found my gate, boarded, and settled in for another 8 hours on a plane. I sat next to a lovely elderly couple from center city who just returned from Malta.

    ... a bench on the crowded platform, settled down to knit, then something caught my eye and I reached for my camera.... And it WASN'T THERE!!! I remembered taking it off my shoulder as I got on the bus; I must have put my bag on top of it and in my haste to get off and run for the train, just left it behind.
