Yesterday we had a ceilidh (kay-lee), which is a traditional Scottish dance that is essentially like a contra dance (even down to the waltzes at the middle and end). I met tons of people, danced a ton of dances, and was probably the happiest human alive last night. No, really.
And there’s another ceilidh tomorrow night!
And another next week!
Like I said, super happy.
Today we had day-long trips around Scotland (within a reasonable distance) and I managed to snag a ticket out to St. Andrews and Falkland Palace. Cool fact? I was in St. Andrews when Clinton got her honorary degree there. I saw the procession. Not so cool fact? Hilary Clinton wasn’t visible from where I was, and I couldn’t get it without a ticket. Silver lining? St. Andrews is astoundingly cool even without Hilary Clinton there. Also, Falkland Palace is beautiful and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.
So to satisfy your dying curiosity, here are some of my photos from earlier today!
