In Scotland, we have done some shooting skeet, they participated in falconry, a walk around Edinburgh, examples of kilts and certainly tasted Scotch whiskey ...
The tour program was very intense and a lot of time was spent on travel, so plainly see Edinburgh we did not have time. Well, it was my third visit to this wonderful city?
Note the rows of pipes on the roofs:
Edinburgh - almost the only city in the UK, which was not bombed Hitler's troops. The Fuhrer was very fond of the city and wanted to make it a European capital after the victory:
In the newspaper stalls, you can find the press to suit all tastes, including the day before yesterday, "Izvestia":
