  3. Yes, in the reflection I do think I can recognise your distinctive chiselled granite-like features. Which coffee place is that, by the way? I'd like to give that view a try next time wife and daughter hit the Auld Reekie shops, and while obviously I can figure it out roughly I am wondering which it is. Waterstones at the West End? Or further West? Or do I have to look for the stone column and find it for myself? (And find you sitting there drumming your fingers and asking "what took you so long?")

  4. Waterstones at West End - right next door to Game, between Castle Street and S Charlotte Street. Starbuck's is on top floor but there's a small and popular mezzanine floor where we were today.

  6. Is it Stirling Castle? Sorry I am just an English girl and not quite sure...

  7. Thanks :-) I wasn't sure between the two. I haven't seen Edinburgh from quite that angle before.

    Which shows despite my love of books and bookshops I have missed an opportunity!!!

  8. Sorry for being late...Family's this and that!!!! But I wanted to say I recognised the Castle. A friend brought me an Edinburg Calendar from his English trip. The best city he saw (he enthused.
    Beautiful view here...

  9. Now Claudia as you are American :) I need to point out a mistake.

    Edinburgh is in Scotland. England is the country to the south. Your friend may have visited Britain but Edinburgh was not possible if only England were visited.

    Sorry about the American tag. I think that's the equivalent of a Scot being called English.

    Thanks for your nice comments here and elsewhere.

  10. No insult at all here, Calum Carr. I am North American. The fact that USA has accaparated the word American, and the world has accepted this, doesn't change the truth. I belong to the American Continent, want it or not.

    Thank you for teaching me the proper etiquette about the British world.
