Edinburgh

overcast 20 °C

Today is my last day here in Edinburgh, before I move on to Montreal, Internet time here is a premium six pound an hour so will make it brief. The highlight of my time here is definitely going to The Edinburgh Military tattoo last night, the weather was perfect and I had an excellent view of it all even though it was nose bleed territory!! The whole show lasted about an hour and a half and flowed with precision, they had highland band, a contingent from South Australia nd New Zealand as well as other parts of the world. Theyalso had the Highland fling dancers. Have been on a boat cruise and learnt some stuff about Scotland, I didn't realise they exported oil from the North Sea or that oysters ued to be harvested there as wel, they were basically destroyed by pollution of the ocean but fortunately there are signs that they may reestablish. Have also dodne the hop on hop off tour here and visited a number of historical places, including the Queens residence here in Scotland
The street shows here are fantastic and you can waste quite a few hours being entertained and if you like the program you donate whatever you feel is appropriate.
Went to a toy museum today, it was fun and saw some of the older toys that I can remember playing with.
Off to Montreal tomorrow and hopefully the hotel will have wifi.
The weather has been good just with a bit of rain this afternoon.l
