|We finally saw our first piper, working a busy corner for tips.|
|Only in Scotland!|
|The start of the Royal Mile|
|St. Giles Cathedral, which isn't actually a cathedral but a Presbyterian Church|
|The city is full of statues of all kinds, |
but this was the one Clay wanted a picture with.
|Edinburgh Castle perched upon Castle Rock|
(The building on the right--The Elephant House Cafe--
is where J.K. Rowling wrote the first of the Harry Potter books.)
|Mortsafes, such as this, were used in Greyfriars to deter body snatching,|
which was quite popular in the 18th and 19th centuries,
due to an overwhelming need of the medical department
at Edinburgh University for bodies to dissect.
