I assume the traffic cone was a hume-orous gesture? The place was a bit more than a plebeian kilometre?

@missF Is that some kind of euphemism?

Haha! No euphemism. It’s ‘supposed’ to rub off some wisdom on you :D

Ha! I didn't see that. I'll Google 'shiny red toe' later - goodness only knows what will show up!

Back at the airport now - had a great day and made the best of it. Had half an hour to spare before jumping on the impressive tram and I was really impressed with Chisholm Hunter - really indulged me with Grand Seikos and very friendly to chat to. Fabulous range - far better than my local branch. Got an invited back to their GS event on 31/8. Also impressed that the Swatch store actually has Moonswatches in stock.

^^^ I hope the tram was impressive, it should be for about £700m :problem:

Yes Chisholm Hunter are the only GS dealer in Edinburgh and do have a great range.

I also walked past Swatch and noticed the display. I don’t think I’d buy one though even if in stock!

Ouch, that's expensive! Seemed regular and efficient, but of course I'm just a tourist so I've got a blinkered view.i was open to be persuaded on the Swatch, but after handling it didn't quite do enough to get my wallet out

@Kansas City Milkman - I’m glad you had a grand day out and I must apologise for the rain. I truly feel personally responsible - and it’s been hellish this week. I know you won’t believe me but it hardly ever rains like that here. Trouble is this is the one week where this sort of weather is certain - and that’s because the Fringe is starting! :lol: :thumbup:

Thanks. I did wonder about the Fringe - I saw quite a few ‘studenty’ types thrusting leaflets at people and assumed something was starting soon. I hope the sun shines on you now, a beautiful city like Edinburgh deserves it (I think we all do after the last few weeks of ‘autumn’)

I've been here before, just under a year ago, but I'm endlessly impressed with the architecture of modern City developments.
