Hullo from Scotland!

I am super duper jet-lagged and haven’t had much luck blogging from my iPad in the past, so bear with me as I try and figure this out.

The tombs, crypts, and funerary ornaments are just amazing. image

Greyfriar’s Bobbyimage

The cafe where JK Rowling wrote much of Harry Potter.  (And we did spot the graves of Tom Riddle and a MacGonagall in the kirkyard).  We want to head back there for a proper cuppa tomorrow.image

Statuary in front of St Gile’s Cathedral.image

The Heart of Midlothian (the former administrative center of the town).imageAnd for all my doubters out there: we stopped by a Sainsbury’s grocery and the eggs are sold not refrigerated. Seriously. Eggs are amazing and can keep for ages.

Tomorrow we tour the castle and Holyrood Palace, and hopefully it is not intensely windy, rainy, and cold again. But if it is, we’ll do like the clerk at Sainsbury’s said to us: “Enjoy our lovely “weather”.
