March 29, 2009 (Part TWO)
I should recount the events of today! We started out walking (well, first taking a double-decker coach) into the heart of Edinburgh and walking up to the castle. On the way up I got the news about Samantha! It was unbelievably gorgeous and movie-esque up there. Like a castle out of Lord of the Rings. After that we walked to the “Gothic Rocket”, as the locals call it. It’s a tower in honor of Sir Walter Scot. We climbed up there for an absolutely incredible view of Edinburgh, however the steps did take some getting used to. There was one point at the tippy-top where we didn’t know if we would fit through with our backpacks on! But we did, and the view was insane and the sky was so blue.
