I've got 3 eyes--gonna pluck one out for jesus....

Greetings from Trafalgar Square!

My trip is the coolest ever. Edinburgh is a fabulous city--so fabulous there was no time for blogging. I had a great time hanging out with my friends, exploring the Castle, Mary King's Close, the Museum of Scotland, and of course the Royal Surgeon's Hall Museum. After all, Scotland is the birthplace of modern surgery, and we saw some hella crazy specimens from Charles Bell's Pathology specimens. Too gruesome to detail right now--but there were plenty of 19th century body parts to be seen floating in jars.

My favorite thing was Friday's trip to the Highlands. We went to Doune Castle, which in addition to being the coolest castle ever, also happens to have been featured with a certain coconut accompanied King in Monty Python's the Holy Grail. Fabulous.

We got into London last night, and after a bit of laundry, went on a grand adventure to Lewisham. The TI attendant was quite concerned that we wanted to go there--he called it a "tasty" neighborhood. But, really it was just a lot like how Old Town used to be. Anyway, my Edinburgh friend's sister got us tickets to a secret show of Alabama 3 (called A3 in the U.S.). If you've ever watched the Sopranos, you've heard at least one of their songs. Anyway it was possibly the coolest show I've seen this year, and I'm sure it was the coolest thing going on in London last night.

Today we went to the British Library--got to see the original manuscript of Alice in Wonderland (another personal highlight). Then on to Dali Universe. Now some Indian food, and it'll be the end of a perfect day.
