A Christmas Literary Salon

Each month I attend the Literary Salon hosted by the City of Literature. To get there I left the Edinburgh College of Art, walked through Grassmarket, and up Victoria Street...
which looks a lot better in the Edinburgh Holiday Guide - click their image below to check it out.
I cut across the Royal Mile and past the Writers Museum, which cuts through a wee alley that opens up to this view of Princes Street and the Christmas Village.
     Anyhow, I cut left to the Literary Salon, which is usually hosted by The Wash Bar... and stays there. But not this past time. We started at the bar, but we soon moved on to the John Knox House, home to the Storytelling Centre and the oldest house in Edinburgh, to kick off a new tour.
It began with roasted chestnuts. (I really love these things!)
And a story, of course!
The tour continued from there, but we hadn't eaten yet. So we headed to an Italian restaurant we hadn't yet tried. This was our view.
So, yeah. That was a Tuesday in Edinburgh. :)

Yes, yes, you should! It is GORGEOUS this time of year! And crowded. Christmas here is the 2nd most popular tourist season after Fringe in August. Because, it is simply MAGICAL!!! Your room awaits, m'dear. Hugs, e
