Here he was, piping away outside of our hotel to welcome me on my first visit to Scotland. Well actually he was there for a wedding, but I felt very welcomed too. I just got home, so details are merged in with the ticket stubs and transparent plastic bag of liquid items just now. At least no jet lag, but weather shock instead. Tel Aviv is just as hot as it was when I left, and the humidity has gone up, which I didn't think was possible. Edinburgh weather was ideal, and just a sprinkle once or twice to remind me who was boss.
