Manda:

Hey guys!!!! So we are here at Andy's flat in Ednburgh, Scotland. He is taking such good care of us. We all went out to this bar called the The Last Drop that has something to do with the last dude that was hanged in Scotland, but I never really caught the whole story. Perhaps that was the shot of tequila we took at the Mexican restaurant before we left fault :) We chilled with Andy and some of his work colleagues and had a couple pints and had a lot of fun. Yesterday we had a nature day and Andy drove us all over the place. It was so pretty!!!! This morning I think we're just gonna see the city a bit, do a bit of shopping, and check out the Edinburgh castle which is supposed to be pretty sweet from what everyone tells us.
I miss all of you so much!!!! Sarah Mark needs to buy a plane ticket and come to Italy!!! You will not regret it and you will have so much fun. Especially since you will be in the presence of Amanda :) who is awesome.
Thats it for now!!! Diane went running and I need to go let her in.

Hey everyone! We are in Edinburgh, the most beautiful city in Scotland (arguable). The buildings here are so gorgeous, old, and majestic. We arrived via train from Glasgow yesterday around sunset time, which was the best time to have come in to the downtown area. We then took the city bus to our first offical couchsurfer's flat. Andy is such a cool guy. He took us on a 10-hour tour of Scotland yesterday, through the Scottish Highlands. They were absolutely amazing. I'd always heard of the Scottish Highlands and it always seemed like such a magical place- and it truly is. We saw amazing landscapes, mountains, Scottish highland cows, waterfalls, rivers, streams, lake towns, etc. It got pretty rainy, cold, and the clouds rolled in as we were driving home, but that made it all the more real.

Today we are getting ready to go explore the city of Edinburgh. It is a beautiful, sunny day today and Andre is critiquing my typing/grammar skills at this very moment. Amanda went to the store to get us some breakfast food and D is in the shower just in from her run. We are heading to London tomorrow! Hello to my family, friends, and everyone at Ten Mercer!

Hey Amanda!! Thanks for posting pics of Scotland! (tears)You are in the birthplace of my entire family. I left you a myspace comment too. We are decendants of Robert the Bruce-he defeated England in 1314. My heart is there with you. It's one of the places I want to see. Take pitures at the the castles-will you see Stirling Castle? Think of me there! I'll wait for the vibe from Amazing AMANDA!

Hey Beth! we are sitting in Andy's apartment in the middle of the night, it's his birthday today and we all made him some dinner. Very cool host. We wish we had some sunshine here, usually we see the sun and it runs and hides as soon as we start to enjoy it :(. We miss ya, but I think we all like having our 2-way conversations :P. Michi is pissed right now, that I won't let her on the computer to type you a note, so if her note is angry it's because of me. Haven't found any skate parks for alex yet, but I won't give up! Did you know that michi keeps secrets? I will tell you more when I get back home, or I will email you secret notes. Bye for now!

Michi:
Omigod Beth you have no idea how slow Andre was just typing just to piss me off! Thank you so much for your comment, it's nice to hear from you. We are in Edinburgh, Scotland right now staying with our couchsurfing host. Diane is sleeping and the rest of us are up hanging out. We are going to wake up early tomorrow and go on a hike up to this mountain/hill thing above the city. Then we are taking a train to Glasgow and flying out to London tomorrow! Any last minute suggestions for London cause you've been there right?
Oh and Andre meant to write 'Bethles' but thought it looked lame so I thought I'd throw that in. I said to write B-Dazzle. Tell Shultz I said hi. I saw a skater kid the other day when we were on the train and yelled at Andre to get a picture of him but Andre was too slow to react... He won't give up apparently though. Oh, and we have something in store for you for a souvenier. Mwahaha. Ok well we love you and if Diane was awake she'd say hi too. Tell everyone at work we said hi! Love, Michelle

Hey guys!
Thanks for all the nice comments guys - I'm really happy you enjoyed yourselves here - and even happier you went on to have a great time in London (probably my favourite city in the UK too, if I'm honest). Keep up the good work, can't wait too hear about your exploits in Amsterdam!

Take care y'all,

Andy
