Arthur’s Seat

I finished my first week here in Edinburgh by climbing Arthur’s Seat yesterday. It’s an extinct volcano on the edge of the city which upon climbing offers some incredible views. The International Student Center (ISC) led a bunch of us there. It was a much steeper hike than I anticipated! Also fairly muddy. (Protip: don’t wear converse while climbing Arthur’s Seat!) Definitely worth it though! There are ravens (or are they crows, I can’t tell) nesting in the sides of the cliff and they fly all around as you climb. I think I’ll be climbing Arthur’s Seat a few more times while I’m here. There are a ton of different peaks and cliffs to venture up and I want to explore it more.

I don’t have classes on Wednesdays so I spent today exploring the city. Pretty nice to walk out of a shop and see this…

Many of my posts may be more pictures than words. I think pictures are more interesting than words anyway.
