U.K., Scotland, Edinburgh

From Heathrow Airport in London, rode the tube for maybe 45 minutes to Kings Cross station and took the train from there to Edinburgh. That was on Friday. Got to Edinburgh, called Mike. Then I walked up to the street from the train station. Was surrounded by grand old buildings. Mike, his flatmate Chris, and a friend Jarred, met me at the train station. At Mike’s flat then, hung out a while, lots of foreigners dropping in, coming in through the window. Mike’s other flatmates are Inardo, a Spaniard from the Basque country, and Peter, a German forester. Went to a ceildh – it’s a Scottish dance, like Cajun dancing or square dancing. Traditional Scottish. Went with Christina, Peter’s cousin who’s visiting from Switzerland. Had fun.
