Scotland and the internet

If you have not heard from your cadet through email, Facebook or other electronic means lately there may be good reason. Some of us at Darroch Court - our flat here in Edinburgh - experience regular Internet outages. It's been a little frustrating when trying to work but like the weather, if you wait long enough it will change.
Speaking of the weather, rain is getting to us. The last couple of days have been cloudy and especially rainy. Thursday it rained again. It rains every day, but is usualy a misty rain and stops after a while. The last two days have seen strong downpours. Thursday there was even thunder and lightning. Oddly enough the rain stopped in time for that night's Tattoo performance at Edinburgh Castle. The wet esplanade cast a more dramatic glow on all the acts performing.
In the sun and the rain, the Band Company went on a PT run Thursday in Holyrood Park. The mission was to run up to Arthur's Seat. This "hill" as they call it in Scotland is one of the highest points in the country. It would be a challenge even for the best athlete. The run was organized by our Tattoo liaison officer, Craig. Video to come soon.
