Edinburgh Castle views and the Deacon's Hoose
Around the walls were murals outlining Deacon Brodie's life. The cafe was once the workshop of this rascally councillor who was the inspiration for Jekyll and Hyde. Apparently he hanged in 1788. It struck me that if he had been arrested a few years later he might have been transported to Australia and become a big wig there.
So you see, we are having a great time. We've been sightseeing and shopping and socialising. I've been to the Edinburgh Farmer's Market this morning, a fete this afternoon and tonight we went to my sister in law's place for her delicious and spicy Mexican lasagne with goats cheese.
