Edinburgh

Well Edinburgh, you've officially done it. You've captured my heart. I was highly intrigued by you on my first visit, but after our getting re-acquainted last week you've really won me over. There's something about the way your ancient cobblestones daily collide with this modern world of smartphones and Smart Cars. The way your people seem to be built of a heartier stock; people who took one look at us wimpy Southern Californians donning North Face and scarves to fend off the windy, 59Β° weather and said "This is summer!" Above all, though, I think what I am most captivated by is the way your city seems to float. My mom pointed this out after our first few days and I've been fixated on this idea ever since. Anchored by Princes Street Gardens, Old Town rises majestically and effortlessly up to Edinburgh Castle. On the opposite side, New Town provides a strong contrast with its austere and uniform Georgian townhouses. The result is two halves of the same city somehow suspended both in time and space. Ah, I just love it.
