The wonderful thing about old cities...

...is that they have so many great stories. A few days R&R visiting family in Edinburgh (where many moons ago I was born) allowed for an opportunity to do the tourist bit, and go on some of the more unusual tours offered around the city. Between exploring the vaults hidden deep below the South Bridge of the city, to getting to wander around the cities old graveyards, you get to hear the folklore, stories, legends, myths and hearsay that make up the wonderful historical tapestry of a city as old as Edinburgh.

...the weather obliged as well, with some wind and a dark and foreboding sky, just perfect for some tales of body snatching and ghosts...

...exploring the old vaults...wasn't supposed to be taking pictures, but managed to sneak a few in without the flash...

There is just something special about exploring old places, with old stories, and a hidden past you have to poke around to learn about...
