Two days of outings.

The first was incredibly hot after weeks of rain and autumnly weather. It must have been over 25 degrees Celsius. Scorching, I say.

First, we went up the Royal Mile, through a number of Festival visitors that seemed to exceed the entire populatio of Scotland. It was so crowded that I didn't manage to get into Riddle's Court, which was supposed to be my first stop on a find-HP-related-places project. I think I'll have to wait with that until the Festival is over.

Anyhow. We walked along the south side of the castle, found a charming farmer's market and visited St. John's:

This way to the pictures. A lot of them. )

Let's see whether this works better than yesterday...

Just a few more )

On another note, I just ate porridge for the first time and can't see the appeal, unless one is Oliver Twist. I certainly will not waste any more of my expensive maple syrup on it!

I know I've taken my sweet time - but here it finally is: some Edinburgh picspam!

I don't have much, yet, because I've been more concerned with non-touristic, non-scenic errands and places so far, but I hope you like what's there.

The famed bread slicer. Nothing to see here. Move along.

We have arrived safely after a gruelling, long flight and an even more gruelling wait for the luggage in what seemed to be 132% humidity.

Recovering from motion-sickness tablets, stress, jet lag and general extreme change of climate has not exactly worked out as of yet. Ramadan makes it even more difficult, as the family stays up late and sleeps during the day, which of course Tania does not do. So she and I are the only ones up at the moment and I must say I'd much rather lay down right now.

It's bloody hot.

I better get this schedule thing fixed, since I just found out that my language course started two weeks ago (I missed 50!!!! hours of lessons!) and I will have to get on the bus to the university at effing 7 am from Monday.

Yes. This Monday. The day after tomorrow. Gah.

Will post more pictures soon.

Will reply to emails and reviews and do my beta duties soon as well. Can't concentrate for long periods of time right now...



Outing to some Cousin's developement project.



Village Mosque



View from mountain that I could only climb with the help of an approximately eighty-year-old woman. I plead jet lag.
