Edinburgh, Week 16
I must admit I had a lot of trouble to fill up this article. I never watched TV in Edinburgh and rarely had the opportunity to listen to the radio ~ that doesn't help. So of course there are those free news paper in the buses, but honestly, they only talked about supposely interesting people I don't know, places I've never been, or politics - sure, politics were really important and loud, but I already talked about it... But did I tell you that in Isle of Skye, we could basically see SNP tracts everywhere, including in the most lost tiny little road in the middle of nowhere? This is just how deep they are in Scotland's roots now, from Edinburgh to Inverness...
Portree saying Yes
Anyway, let's be honest, there is no "most shocking local news" if i have to take off politics... Edinburgh is a rather small and safe city compared to Lyon.
There was the royal baby named Charlotte (poor child). Scottish people don't really care but it is still written everywhere.
Rape rumors on campus, relayed by the local student news paper.
The best burger in Edinburgh, which we tried, and that was indeed freaking awesome.
Dinosaurs at the Edinburgh Zoo. Pandas being in love.
And pinguin's eggs. Pinguins in nests. Pinguins everywhere. (Edinburgh loves its zoo, covers the buses with cute pictures).
A lack of donations in the Charity shops, worried because of the bad weather chasing the people away from the streets, and less and less clients.
Backpiper's meetings, Beltane Fire Festival celebrating spring (lots of naked people dancing and playing with fire on Carlton Hill during the night of the first of may - it was 4°C) (very springy indeed)
