A day off, and much needed regrouping and de-shattering. A rainy, cold day in Edinburgh.

Lorraine and I rested lots and then went for a walk around and about in Leith, mooching about by the old docks, which have been transformed, and government buildings. We also went to a place called Toast, which had opened today, for a snack. Good food, nice coffee, but a stress atmosphere caused by it being everyone's first day. Nice to have a bit of quality time with Lorraine.

In the evening, we all went off to see a show of high-quality women comedians in a show called Nasty Women on the Fringe. Matt got picked on and brought up into one of the acts. Loads of laughs through the night. A great line up and we are going to see some of the women next week if we can. It was free to get in, but you had to pay to leave. Well worth it.

Below a view from one of our rooms, if you enlarge it you can see the bird corpses rotting in the wirework. Then old rails, the stairs leading up to our nice apartment, and a sign in The Newsroom, a bar where the comedy was on.
