My past felonies have caught up with me and I was seized and cast into the depths of Edinburgh prison! Actually I paid something like £14 for the privilege! It was an excellent adventure and a mixture of spooky effects, short rides, dark voiceovers and torture.
I escaped uninjured and hope the accusations don’t stick!
But I get ahead of myself. I set off to find breakfast on the bus with a £4 day pass – finding myself heading to The Southern Cross on Cockburn St.
Ah, the architecture of Edinburgh! I love it.
I also loved my first decent flat white in a while:
Then it was on up the cobbled streets of the Mile enjoying some sunshine and festival crowds.
Lest I be enjoying myself too much John Knox, founder of Presbyterianism, scowled at me from the Cathedral frontage.
Further down the Mile I walked and merely by accepting flyers thrust at me received this many by the time I reached The World’s End.
Best of all I encountered this superior owl.
Walking back towards the railway station I passed Edinburgh prison, which is how I found myself incarcerated.
I purchased some salads and fruit from a supermarket to eat back in my room and lay down for a restorative rest.
This evening I’ve been back to the Vue complex for dinner and a movie, and am now sipping tea and biting down on shortbread.
