... like this happened wasn't even able to land because the smoke was so bad.
After the museum I headed back to the hotel to do some homework for part of the day. That's the downside of coming to Europe and taking classes at the same time. But not much really happened for the rest of the day besides walking around Aberdeen to explore the city. We flew out early monday and then went to classes as soon as we were back. It was a great weekend though and I really enjoyed Scotland.
