... at the cafe. Larry and I had a scone sandwich filled with clotted cream and strawberries and split a shortbread. Erin had shortbread and another pastry. Erin had Irn Bru, I had Elderflower, and Larry had Earl Grey tea.

In the afternoon we walked up the Royal Mile between the Palace and the Castle. We stopped at the Church at Cannongate where the queen worships when she is in town. There is a special pew in the front that is ...

... out with my coworkers in a more relaxed setting. Later I headed into the City for a Yale Club of London Event. I have been determined to go to as many free events as possible so this would check that box. It was for current students and alumni of Yale.
