After two weeks in London before returning to my beloved Buenos Aires, the plan was to go to Edinburgh for the Fringe festival Free where my boyfriend was going to be performing with the sketch group that was formed with a pair of friends, so there went, a week before everything starts to prepare for everything and I tour the city before the turn.
We took the train to Victoria Station in Scotland and after a couple of hours we arrived. British trains are expensive but really worth their price, because it travels very comfortable with clean bathrooms, tables for some snack on the way and place to plug in the compu just to see a movie.
The alkyl department along with the rest of the troupe, which fortunately came a week later, was in the newer part of town. Both inside and out was fairly new, like everyone on the block, contrasting well with what was the town across the bridge.
We left our things and went downtown looking for lunch. Near where we had one with a giraffe Shopping metal at its entrance.
Now the other side of the bridge, I could appreciate the beauty of this city declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, its Gothic buildings make you feel like you’re back in time.
On the main street, the pedestrian street had some artists rehearsing their acrobatics, to which I started taking pictures and my boyfriend told me it was nothing to wait for the start of the festival and would not be able to walk around , and he was right.
A little later we passed the statue of Adam Smith, the father of the economy in various parts of the city there are several statues of the most famous in history.
That afternoon my boyfriend introduced me to the city, and it was not his first festival, and showing a bit by passing all the places on my own later could see better.
