    We stayed there for four days and had a lot of fun with the other tourists. It is close to the city centre (walking distance) and the staff is really friendly and it's cheap and clean. The bathroom's are a bit small and I would not buy the breakfast because it's expensive for not much. Rather buy some stuff and prepare it in the kitchen.

    ... and want to talk to all of them. I've already had a hard time understanding a few people. I throughly enjoy people calling me "love" and saying "cheers" instead of goodbye. It's way more fun. The barista hooked me up with a double espresso, so I'm hoping that kicks in pretty soon. The airport employees talk to you in the warmest tones and welcome you with open arms. What a drastic change from Houston.

    We will be taking the bus to our loft when we land. ...

    ... kilt, playing the bagpipes. At that point it really felt like we were in Scotland. Later on, as we reached the cathedral, there was a man up against a monument playing the didgeridoo. It was actually really cool so I bought his CD. We then got set free for free time.
    First stop was the Scottish Wool shop, where we loaded up on scarves and blankets made in Scotland. Before heading off to adventure we had lunch in the famous Elephant House, basking in ...

    For lunch I had haggis with neeps and tatties and whisky gravy. Terry had venison sausage casserole in scotchale sauce, mmmmm. I couldn't help but notice there were cottages for rent in the castle grounds, so guess where ...

    ... car park in Edinburgh which is situated next to Saint Giles cathedral. This originally was an old graveyard that with the weather caused the buried bodies to resurface. It was decided that they be moved to another site, however they left one body behind. To this day the body of a person is buried directly under car park 23.
