Where in the World Wednesday: Scotland

It's Classy in Philadelphia's Where in the World Wednesday!

The idea of WITWW is to post a picture of you in someplace in the world... it doesn't have to be somewhere foreign or tropical. Just a picture of you somewhere that you consider traveling. It might even be somewhere in your own hometown!
On July 21, 2002, my Michigan State study abroad group left London for a week in Edinburgh, Scotland. We stayed at the University of Edinburgh's dorms near Holyrood Park, and woke up to this spectacular view every day:

Arthur's Seat!

I climbed the hill after a couple of days of admiring it from afar, and it was so worth it. It was lush and green... and crawling with giant black slugs. I poked around some ruins and took this picture of the city skyline at dusk, just before my camera's batteries died:

Other activities included a class trip to the BBC in Glasgow, visiting Edinburgh Castle, dinner at the Hard Rock Edinburgh, and seeing The Art of Star Wars exhibit.

I somehow didn't manage to get a picture of myself the whole week!

I love Scotland--the accent is incredible. And somehow, the men there really can make a kilt look sexy!
