Here are a few snaps from the trip.
Yes we went to see the Pandas at the zoo - all they do is sleep, eat and poo and can only mate on two days in one year... no wonder they are endangered! The zoo are hopeful that they moment of love next year will be a bit more success apparently Yuang Guang (the male above) "got his geography a bit wrong" when they got together this year!
The stunning castle up on the crag looking up from Princes Street gardens, which were years ago a man made lake (the Nor Loch) where all the waste from the Old Town part of the city went... oh and they dunk witches in there too. Given what was in there the fact that they burnt you at the stake for being a witch if you did float in it was possibly a blessing in disguise!
Palce of Holyroodhouse - The Queen's official gaff in the city.
A view of Princes Street gardens, Princes Street itself (the main shopping area), the New Town and in the distance Leith and the Firth of Forth from the castle.
