Started off the day at The City Cafe, which was just around the corner from where I was staying. Had a vegetarian breakfast which included some form of “vegetarian haggis” – although I have no idea what could have possibly been in it. It was OK.
I did some street touring and coffee shop working, though mostly ineffective. Walked through the Palace of Holyrood a little bit today, which is the Queen’s residence when she’s in town. Which isn’t very often, I don’t think. I didn’t pay for the actual tour or to walk around inside, because I really don’t care about it all that much.
Right next to it is Holyrood Park, which includes Arthur’s Seat. I walked up it a little ways but it got rainy and really windy so I didn’t quite get the full view. Of course, it got sunny out right after I walked away from it, but I didn’t care enough to go all the way back up. I’ve seen enough skylines and far away pictures of lakes for a lifetime the past few weeks.
After a bit more of time wasting, I got on the 9:45pm bus to London. I arrived into Victoria Station this morning at about 6:20am. So I’m back in London, which is the point of this post, really. And I’m tired, so I might just stay here. A bunch of the coffee shops here had opened at 6, like coffee shops should. For that, I am thankful.
