Well, I’ve made it safely to Edinburgh. I’m studying for a Diploma in Brewing and Distilling at Heriot Watt University. The campus is very attractive, with lots of large trees and artificial lakes and things. The buildings are all reassuringly 80s vintage or so. The campus is on the outskirts of town, but I’ve taken the bus into Edinburgh already to get some things for my self-catered flat in the halls of residence. There was a bed, a desk, a wardrobe but almost nothing else. No coat hangers, no toilet paper. No bed linen or duvet. No crockery. No cutlery. No pots and pans. When I first arrived, I had some difficulty getting the internet connection sorted, but that’s all in order now. One nice touch was the vodafone pay as you go sim card and a box of junk food that I found on my desk as a freshers week welcoming present. I need to go buy a top up to use it though.
I’ll post a photo of my room as soon as I can get my phone talking to this old laptop.
bye bye for now.
