Our first night in Edinburgh happened to be the last night of the Festival, and after an afternoon power nap and a little walk to familiarize ourselves with the local area we were treated to a display of fireworks over Edinburgh Castle. Who knew that our hotel would be ideally situated to enjoy the pyrotechnics? The display was choreographed to the orchestra, which we had playing on the radio while we watched. Rumor has it that there were 100,000 units (what do you call individual fireworks?) set off, an impressive display, The streets were blocked off in all directions, and in the lull in the usual city traffic the cabs pulled over to the curb to take in the finale. Today the sun is out and the breeze has abated, and it looks like it's going to be a fine day.
