Victoria Station

I was very impressed with the capable and stylish manner in which you dealt with that situation

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.

Here’s what Edinburgh looks like.

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.

Construction, unlike Ireland, where they let things get ruined and then sell tickets to see it.
