Edinburgh

Posted by Signe Trewyn on May 21st, 2016

When I first heard the word Edinburgh, I thought it was a rather elegant word, filled with large buildings and a haunted past. the day I decided to go there my expectations were met.

The first thing I did when I got there was to look around at the large buildings. There are large buildings everywhere as well as many people. Once we were there, we walked around until we found a small diner where we ate food, I had a sandwich. My face lighted up at the fact that we were there because I like spending time in cities where the culture is there. Once we finished lunch and the smoothie I ordered which was strawberry banana with real fruit pieces, we continued on to explore the city.

A walk down the street lead us to the museum showcasing surgery, it was quite interesting to see the different surgeries that were done. The museum showcased old skeletons as well as body parts affected by numerous ailments. A quite a bit of time was spent at the museum walking around and seeing different surgical tools used to conduct surgeries. In cases, there were sheers and forceps that were used to conduct surgeries that were without anesthesia.

There was also the chance to purchase a nice t-shirt that was abstractly decorated with a electric guitar which was awesome. I liked the color and the fact that I had the chance to speak to a local about where I was from and what shirt I liked. He was a vendor who was selling t-shirts that day that showed what I was interested in the most which was music because there was a t-shirt that featured guitars on the front.

The museum featured different floors which housed skulls and other body parts. I thought that the museum featured many items that my friends were interested in and it was for sure a different viewpoint other than just a history museum. The museum also featured a story about a man who murdered sixteen people and stole their bodies from the cemetery. This story seemed to be a trend around Edinburgh because there was a dungeon attraction which featured the same story.

We walked a bit farther where more large buildings were viewed which made it interesting because of their size which was neat. The buildings I walked down were traditionally European because of the architecture on the sides. When I turned my head I saw a street that looked like it was part of the older part of town, it featured a building that looked like a castle, it also had characteristic buildings of Edinburgh. I thought that that was a large part of the Edinburgh culture.

I walked down the street which was cool because there was a large building that had the characteristic architecture. There was also a church steeple that was unique because it was black and it looked like a very old cathedral. The history in it was there and I admired it for its design, the color and the magical look of the architecture.

We went to a bar which featured live music and alcohol, it was also green which reminded me of an Irish pub. I thought the design was cute and it featured music legends such as the Beatles on the wall. While there, I was treated to the acoustic music of a solo artist.

An elderly couple began to dance to the music in a way that did not disturb the artist, they moved around the bar without caring who was watching. I thought that that was the best part of the trip. The artist complimented them on their dance skills while they applauded his performance.
