 Friday I'm in love... with Edinburgh

I’m not from Edinburgh.
As a city it wasn’t my first love.
In fact, Glasgow stole my heart first,
then I cheated on it with Copenhagen.

But by god, I have learned to love you Edinburgh,
you crazy cool be-castled city.*

And every August, I fall a little more in love
as the Festival takes over and forces me**
into the streets to go and explore, laugh,
think, meet, and generally not sit on my sofa.

This year was no different.
Except I went to more shows than ever before.
And also to 3 weddings and a 90th birthday too.

Here’s a few snaps that sort of sum up
a little of my Edinburgh in August…

Thank you Edinburgh, it was great.

Now I need a lie-down…
and maybe a cat nap too!

So what about you? Do you love where
you live? Or do you dream of living
somewhere else?

* Yes, be-castled is not a word.
** Forces me without the need
for a cattle-prod or other threat!
