Dear Edinburgh,

Dear Edinburgh, I’m sorry. I’m sorry it has taken me so long to realise that I do, in fact, love you. Things did start out pretty rough, I’m not going to lie. I had no place to live, you were crawling with students fighting tooth and nail for every available …

One afternoon Dev and I walked up Marjan Hill to the viewpoint where this photo was taken. The walk was quite easy, and there were several houses located on the path up the hill. It was a really cool area. The rain stopped for a few minutes, so I was able to snap a few photos on Dev’s phone. There was actually a café at the lookout point and an entire park beyond that, but we decided to head back to our warm beds rather than brave the wind and rain more than was necessary.
