I'm in Scotland

Posted by Akano Toa of Electricity , in Life Jun 16 2014 · 115 views

So, I'm currently in Edinburgh, UK for official Hogwarts business doing research with a collaborator at the local university. Things I have done include
  • Vaguely losing consciousness on the plane ride over the Atlantic to adjust to new time zone. Would not qualify it as sleeping.
  • Instead of checking into the hotel (which didn't allow checkins until 2 p.m. local time), climbing Arthur's Seat to the summit with my advisor like a boss.
  • Enjoyed a Guinness. (Not Scottish, I know, but arguably fresher than those sold in the US.)
Things I have not yet done include
  • Tossing a caber.
  • Wearing a kilt.
  • Playing bagpipes.
  • Trying haggis. (Will probably do this at breakfast tomorrow, though.)
So far so fun. Also I've done research. Totally why I'm here. :P

If the cabers are too heavy for you, you can always try the Ullapool variety. =P

You know, I was never really interested in pursuing a higher degree (feel free to shame me), but I totally should have done it just for the world traveling. Greenland, Scotland, China, Norway... science guys go to call the cool places!

He says he's there for research, but the truth is I yelled at him to get off my lawn so much that he fled the country.

Ugh, I've been to the England part of the UK, and we traveled right up to the border of Scotland...but didn't go across. I'd really like to go there eventually, but I'll pass on the haggis XD
