Friday, August 23

Started out visiting Edinburgh Castle. Web sources seen to warm against going first thing in the morning, but I disagree. By the time I left, a couple hours after opening, it was really crowded (although the site’s mini-tour guide indicated it was a light day). I’m very glad I got there before it got too busy.

I’ll upload more pix when I get on WiFi.

Finally got up the guts to try my first haggis today (as a “starter” with my lunch – my main meal of the day). Tasted like a very moist meatloaf. I think how good haggis tastes is highly dependent on the gravy put over it, and the gravy here at Howie’s was very good. My main dish, salmon, potatoes and broccoli, was very tasty. And I was glad to follow my server’s recommendation of having some Glenfiddich 12 y/o.

Shows

QuintessenceEmily CardingReally good. I’d like to get my hands on this script to perform it myself.
DNA?Recommended by someone in my hotel room, and deservedly so. Excellent acrobatic/aerial performance.
The Resistable Rise of Arturo UiProbably teenagers, but very talented ones with good direction.
Fempire: Cleo, Theo, and WuBy and featuring Kristen Vangness of Criminal Minds fame. It was okay. A little simplistically PC feminist.
