On the NYE day, I picked up my street pass and went to the festival around 8pm. It was already full of people celebrating, drinking, dancing, singing, pissing, vomiting, name it, I saw it. People in kilts, crazy hats and outfits certainly made the festival even more colorful
While squeezing to get one place to another, I ran into two Aussies I snowboarded with in Poland. Talk about random!@# In the middle of thousands and thousands of people, it was unbelievable to run into them and we shared a good laugh, exchanging travel stories after Poland. After the countdown, explosion of fireworks lit up the sky from all different angles and people just went nuts, hugging, kissing, dancing and screaming all at the same time. Scottish, like the Irish, are so very friendly by nature and it was too much fun to share that moment with them.
Good times were had which meant the next day was a struggle to get up. The whole city looked pretty much dead on the first and the few people that were out on the streets looked like zombies in search for blood, or in this case, water. Of course it was raining again as well which made the whole day even gloomier. With that, I decided to go to London bit earlier and see the rest of UK until I finally head back home.
