I'm far too tired to give even what little I've seen of the city the full attention it deserves. The trip was pretty exhausting (I don't think anybody much cares for eight hour flights), and I'm determined not to sleep until it's bedtime Scotland time, to get acclimated to the new time zone ASAP. So Cara took me to see a few sights after dinner.

Rendezvous with my cousin went smoothly, by the by. She and her betrothed are both lovely people. It's so nice to have this opportunity to get to know them a little and see a bit of Edinburgh into the bargain. I've been really grateful, to have someone to meet me at the airport was wonderful and they're incredibly gracious hosts.

Anyway I am here in one piece and have already taken at least a dozen photos! Edinburgh is old and very beautiful. Greyfriar's kirkyard is amazing and I can't wait to get a better look at it, especially at night.

Well I feel fried. Details of the flight and my first impressions to come. Just wanted concerned parties to be posted on my intact status. ;)

Edinburgh smells of history and cooking and Scottish air.
