Okay, so we are at last here in Edinburgh, taking Miss T to uni. She's all gung-ho and everything, and we moved her into her residence halls and bought her groceries and blah blah blah. The usual "moving in" experience.

This afternoon, we thought we'd climb up the huge hill/mountain directly behind her rooms. (The University of Edinburgh is nothing if not scenic!)

We climbed...

and climbed more....

paused to catch our breath, almost at the top...

And when we approached the very pinnacle, we heard "Nie! Nie! Przepraszam!" in that newly familiar language.... Polish.

And here at the very top of the mountain are a bunch of Polish boyos, havin' a beer!

I was going to ask them to take the bag of empties off the monument so my photo would look nicer, but couldn't figure out how to phrase it.

Meanwhile, back down at our hotel, the two reception girls are from Jo'burg South Africa, and Poland, respectively.

The world just gets smaller and smaller every day.

The Firth of Forth lies beyond our group of jovial drinkers. And it didn't rain at all, despite the gloomy clouds.
