With oldest friend AH. Nothing to laugh about in the modern world of course, though we managed.

Scotland

At the Book Festival in Edinburgh - wet and windy city but a Gothic stunner. Shame the talk on Dissidents and the Internet was so poor - badly chaired and little new said. Still, there were compensations - there are few places where you can sit waiting for your breakfast whilst eavesdropping on a human rights lawyer's description of trying to get insurance for a trip to Iraq: she definitely wanted both kidnapping and dismemberment cover.

No pics from the trip I'm afraid as it was too wet and the phone camera is not up to the task. Still, I was photographically inspired by a visit here.
