After hearing about it online a few times, and finding one nearby my flat in Barcelona, I decided today to try out one of the foot spas with the Doctor Fish that nibble off the dead skin on your feet.

It was an interesting sensation, having a dozen or so little fish per foot just going to town and having a big meal of dead Adam skin. I have fairly sensitive feet, and it only elicited a ticklish chuckle out of me once or twice. So if you’re ticklish and have denied doing this, I’d say that shouldn’t stop you.

I am fish food. 🙂

Slept until noon, got lunch at “The World Famous Frankenstein” pub and wrote out this week’s postcards, then toured the (actually) famous Holyrood Palace.

Today I hopped on a tour bus managed by Timberbush Tours which visited the West Highland Lochs, Mountains & Castles.

Today’s fast food is brought to you by Harry Ramsden’s Famous Fish and Chips. The fish is gigantic, the drink is miniscule, and it’s all tipped with cheese. Sorry I couldn’t find McHaggis…

It’s all pretty good, average fish and chips, but the cheese makes it a little soggy, I think. 5/10 might try again.

Didn’t do a whole lot today, I’m afraid.  Went and got a shave and a haircut, walked around the Princes St. gardens, visited a couple pubs, and went to see the latest Simon Pegg/Nicholas Frost/Edgar Wright movie “The World’s End” with my flatmates.  But figured I’d at least post the photos I took, including a statue of Mr. Sherlock Holmes.

Yesterday (got in too late to write this up), I went to the National Museum of Scotland, the Scotch Whiskey Experience, and Edinburgh Castle.  Found a couple of other things along the way.

So I’ve realized that I’m a few days behind here…  I visited the modern art museum, the Norse museum, the museum of art and design…

Who wants one? I’m currently sending about 6/week to people that it occurs to me to send or I have addresses for.

If you’d like to receive at least one postcard from me in the next 6 weeks that I’ll be out, comment here or email me with your address at snoopyh42@gmail.com. If you think I have your address, you’re probably right, but I have the one from one or two moves ago. I suck at updating my address book.

I thought today instead of regular fast food, I’d hit up a pizza joint. I ordered a slice of margherita pizza, and got what’s pictured. It’s greasy, cheesy, no sign of tomatoes or basil, and tasty nonetheless.

I was craving something crappy (probably due to my American diet) and this fulfilled that need.

I know a lot of these posts seem to be “and then I wandered”, but really, that’s kinda my M.O. for how I’m handling this trip.  I pick a place, pick a direction, and see what I can find that looks interesting.  If I don’t find anything, then I go somewhere else and try again, or I consult my pants computer to see if IT knows of anything interesting nearby.
