Edinburgh Day 1
Edinburgh is a breathtaking city. Up there with Quito, Cape Town, Rio, San Fran (and, really, SF proper pales in comparison with the others) in terms of verdant lushness combined with actual urbanity. Even though the city is choked with people right now, it feels spacious.
I took the train from London this morning on very little sleep so I'll keep this update brief.
As well as walking all over the place, I saw:
1) Fall @ the Traverse Theatre (on which I will, at least for now, reserve comment)
2) the fantastic Shazia Mirza at the Baby Grand venue at the Pleasance Courtyard (not to be confused with the Pleasance Dome, which I keep wanting to call the "Pleasure Dome").
