Grassmarket
Well everyone I'm on the ground here in Edinburgh. I got in here yesterday about 0900 local (Noon Kuwait time).
 
The flights over were good. KLM was outstanding as usual. As in my last post my KIA to AMS flight was nice. Hardly anyone on board. My AMS to EDI flight was a bit more packed but I had the 2 seats next to me open and it was only a 1 hr flight so it was nice. My driver picked me up from the airport right on time. His name was Johnny and was a great guy and an excellent driver. He dropped me off at the Apex City Hotel which is where I set up shop. The hotel is located in an area in Edinburgh known as the Grassmarket. I'm in the shadow of Edinburgh Castle up on the hill.
 
 The town here is very old and quite beautiful. The architecture here is just amazing. I've included some pictures below so take a look at them. The times on them and on these postings are in Kuwait time so it won't look quite right. I hope to go out tonight and take more as its awesome here at night. So be looking for additional photos in future entries.  Well thats enough for now I got alot of walking ahead. Take care and look back here soon for more stuff.
