One of the most fun nights in Edinburgh was when we did a quiz at a pub, mostly trivia questions, some abuot Scotland, some about music
. It was really a challenge, we didn't win, but we had a lot of fun. Then we went dancing at a place called Faith. My only regret is that I had to work while she was touring, so I could not explore the palace and Calton hill with her. She saw some sights that I haven't been able to get to yet!
Before Kathleen caught her train, the two of us and two others from Brodie's went out for Chinese buffet. That was amazing for me, some things were on the menu that I've never seen before (and they tasted very good!). There were, as always, many things on the list we didn't get to do like deep fried Mars bars and climbing Arthur's seat. But I think we really made the most of the time that we had without being too driven or too lazy, a happy medium.
It is hard to sum up such a week. We went out for a few meals, breakfast at a place called Always Sunday, where we sat at the window on High Street and had a huge breakfast (which included haggis). There was dinner at the Castle Arms (more haggis). And Kathleen's favorite part of St. Andrew's, where we went on the weekend was the sweet potatoe and ricotta lasagne she had at Victoria's Cafe, I had a turkey brie and cranberry wrap with curly fries which was great too. My favorite part of St Andrew's was not the food though, I loved the beach. There were such oddly shaped rocks, the water was so beautiful in greys and greens, and the pebbles on the shore were pinky and orange. The hostel had a nice living room and we chilled out there on Saturday night, watched Mr and Mrs Smith - I really enjoyed that too, it's been over a month since tv and couches!
