All the way, just for the day

dscf23861 0900. We had to wake at 0400 (?!) to catch our flight to Edinburgh on an empty stomach and mind, that is why are so glad to find this greasy diner when we arrived at Haymarket. The boys had a big fry-up while I settled for an egg sandwich. Copious amounts of coffee later, we were finally alive enough to head to our meeting.

I had pan-fried coley from their lunch and early evening menu. The boys had thai salad and cous-cous, which were very delicious according to them. They finished with cake and ice-cream. I managed to restrain myself and didn’t order dessert.

dscf24001700. Edinburgh Castle is in the background. The city is undergoing major construction works in order to introduce tram travel in 2011. What a good idea! It was a pity we had to go home after this was taken. I didn’t even get to shop around for a tartan blanket.
