We have seen many wonderful things here in Edinburgh, from the Castle on top of the extinct volcano, to the underground city, to Marlin's Wynd, etc. By far, the most enjoyable part for us has been all of the great people we have met,...which has been true throughout this whole adventure. The one lesson that we have learned, and will carry with us wherever we go, is how easy it is to just talk with folks. To a person, they have all been friendly to, and open with, us. Some have befriended us on Facebook and/or sent us emails with suggestions on where to go. It has been...and still remains...delightful.
Presented here is the latest group of people we have met in Edinburgh:
And perhaps the most unique person we have met was Elaine Davidson, holder of the Guinness Book of World Records for the most body piercings (over 9500). While most of the time she "...holds court" along the Royal Mile (where we met her), she also runs a shop for aromatherapy, jewelry, and specialized clothing. Originally a nurse from Brazil, Elaine now lives in Edinburgh and freely talks with folks about her piercings, which she estimates now weighs approximately 6.6 pounds.
To all we have met along the way, a huge thank you for taking the time to talk with us.
