Just a quick update… I’ve just come from 5 days in London, where I saw two plays, a ballet and the French Property show. Also spent a day out in the countryside with a friend where we played with birds of prey – holding them on fast-wearying outstretched left arms in a heavy leather gauntlet. Eagles, hawks, owls, kestrels. Played come and get ’em holding out parts of dead day-old baby chicks (you hafta forget about that) and getting cool photos of the birds landing with outspread wings.
Now at the end of my 2nd full day in Edinburgh. Visited the Royal Yacht Britannia and I’m on my way to the Castle for the first time in 5 visits.
Tomorrow, head to Glasgow for the flight back to Iceland for a few days, hoping to see the Aurora Borealis.
Pictures and more complete posts in a week or so.
