    Favorite thing: I enjoy reading and hjnthoroughly enjoy the Inspector Rebus Mysteries set in south Edinburgh. I believe it is possible to go on Rebus tours though have not investigated them yet.
    I have however had the Police Station where Rebus 'works', and the terrace houses like those where he 'lives', as well as the general neighbourhood described in the novels, pointed out to me.
    So as a bonus to Rebus fans, a tour, guided or not, is well worth doing

    Fondest memory: Photo One: St Leonard's Police Station
    Photo Two: terraces in Meadowbank area
    Photo Three: The Pleasance
    Photo Four: Salisbury Crags, site of one of the murders

    Favorite thing: When you enter the garden from the West Gate, you will find the Botaincs shop on your right hand size. First, I suggest you buy the map before you walk around because it is quite big. I think you would like to choose something you prefer. My first choice is the 'Glasshouse Experience'. Then I fed the squirrels on the green. I spent almost half of the day here.

    Favorite thing: This is the inside of Edinburgh College of Art. I showed it to my parents who originally met each other at the art gallery at UCLA and they agreed this pretty much kicks the crap out of UCLA. Impressive.

    Fondest memory: This is Victoria Lane, on the way to my first glimpse around the College of Art. What a great intro to a really cool area of the city. Lights are beginning to be strung around for the winter celebrations...too bad I left before that.

    Favorite thing: Scottish National Gallery, FREE and great. Impressionists are upstairs and they have some really unique drawings on display right now downstairs in the back.
