We went to Edinburgh for the first time today...it was very cool. We climbed Arthur's Seat and that was so steep and rocky...we literally had to climb rocks at time. I stopped about halfway and didn't think my legs could go on, but I decided I better do it and I am so glad I did (even though it killed). The view was amazing and it was so cool to look from the bottom up at how high we climbed. Afterward, a few of the girls and I went and found a nice little place to eat and got a couple souvenirs.
As for the bus ride home, THAT was an ordeal...first we got on the wrong bus, so we had to switch around...when we did, there were some meth addicts with their pitbull sitting by us yelling at us and falling out of their seats. Then we passed Dalkeith but thought there was another stop, and we just went straight on to the next town so we had to get on ANOTHER bus back. It was so funny but we were all so tired and just wanted to get back to the castle. And I thought the "reekin" Scottish boys we met last night were bad...
I'm having trouble finding veggie friendly places here too, which I didn't think it would be...Edinburgh seems to have more places, but I haven't had a chance really to explore Dalkeith so I hope to do that tomorrow and this week.
I hope all is well on the home front...send me an email sometime!
