Edinburgh is one of those cities like Prague that has a magic about it. The weather has not been raining so that has been very fortunate for me. I'll take it! I will say I have been struggling to really be up for the extra sight seeing stuff a my trip has been winding down. I feel pretty worn out. A fun day in edinburgh to me has been wanting to take a nap in the park and people watch! Ha!
I did that, but along w the nap I did a walking tour. The tour guide was probably the best one I have had on the trip so far. She did a good job of telling some really cool folk stories of the Scottish people, some really cool history, tons of traditions, and some other cool sights and interesting acts about the city. Edinburgh has had quite the interesting history. Scotland has had quite the interesting history ESP w England. Very cool and interesting to get to know a little bit here the last couple of days The architecture, bagpipes, accents, and the scenery I think are the main reasons for the magic I referred to earlier. ( among other things of course). On my second day I visited the edinburgh museum, Giles cathedral, and the Scottish national history museum. Also hot to see dolly, the cloned sheep that was made near Edinburgh. She's dead now, so they made some haggis from her and stuffed h and put her on display in the museum. Kinda funny. Museum was a really good one. othe than tha, just been laying low and trying to recover from my all nighters in London last weekend. Still not there yet. :). Off I the Scottish highlands tomorrow! Very excited!

Cheers!
