          Location could not have been better for all Fringe Festival activities. It was a bit warm the week we were there and the windows only open up a few inches--the fan was a big plus. Main challenge was the overpowering smell of mold coming from the bathroom. Also, the bed was a bit tiny for two of us. Once we got situated we didn't want to ask for a new room (additionally, we didn't expect to spend much time in the room) so we didn't complain. Best part of our stay was its very central location.

          Today we decided to walk around Edinburgh. the rain had started earlier in the morning but it wasn't coming down too hard for me to use my umbrella. Our first stop was Edinburgh Castle which was truly impressive! after a few hours of touring the castle we walked down the Royal mile. My planning didn't run across the fact that there was a month …

          ... the doorbell but to ring a phone number in order to be let inside. As I didn't have any way to contact Kev and Erin, I rang the phone number, and it's safe to say the man on the other end of the line wasn't thrilled to have his sleep disturbed! The conversation went something like this;

          Me - "Hi, sorry but I can't wake up my friends and I am locked out of the front door"
          Man - "Why don't you have a key"
          Me - "Because my friends cam home earlier and took the ...

          ... I had a 5:45am bus back to London but the hostel was running a free pub crawl. They offered a guarantee they would get me to the station in time but with no sleep and possibly intoxicated. After my rather large week in Ireland I decided pasta and bed was a better option – mum would be so proud! The ten hour bus ride was bad enough; I could only imagine a hangover would've killed me!

          London is next on the agenda with hopefully a job in sight! ...

Anthony Rapp of RENT and currently starring in his own show WITHOUT YOU is coming tonight to see the cast perform MOD. Pretty much all the Hook/Hartshorn family of shows will be in attendance ...
