Edinburgh has got to be the most boring place so far in our visit to Scotland. Other than Arthur’s Seat, there wasn’t really much to see. The famed Royal Mile is just a stretch of old restored buildings that caters mainly to tourist selling food and tourist trinkets much like our restored Chinatown back in Singapore.

We skipped Edinburgh Castle and instead went to Holyrood Palace which is the quarters for the Queen of England when she visits.
One thing about European country is that there is always some sort of demonstration and protests going on. Like this one on Climate Change which we saw from our diner window.
And there are buskers a plenty. Practically one every 10 feet doing all sort of performance.
But at the end of the day, I was glad to be out of Edinburgh and on to London.
