Taste of Edinburgh 2011

While riding on the subway in Glasgow, an ad for the Taste of Edinburgh happened to catch my eye. Too bad we wouldn’t be in Edinburgh for a few more days, I thought. Then I saw the event dates: it started the Friday we’d be in Edinburgh! Upon our return to our hotel, I immediately purchased tickets.

And they were well worth the modest price; the weather was beautiful (from what we understand, days without rain in Scotland are a blessing) and the food was amazing.
