Charles de Gaulle airport was not nearly as bad as its reputation (although they do need more elevators in the train station), and we made it to our terminal in plenty of time. We watched the crowd subtly change from French to Scottish. There are differences in bone structure, stance, dress, and expressions. The Scottish people are amazingly friendly and just tend to smile more than any other people I've ever met! We climbed aboard our EasyJet plane and an hour and a half later, we landed in Scotland. Again, I was so excited, the customs official was laughing at/with me. I couldn't stop smiling! Here's the lovely welcome at baggage claim:
We settled into our hotel room and then headed to what, we hope, will be one of our more well used local pubs, Lister Square. What a welcome! The bartender is an expert in Scotch. A live musician played some of our favorite songs. And this is what bar fare looks like in Edinburgh:
And I had the haddock and risotto.
