Lessons From Edinburgh

These past few days I have found myself wondering what on earth I was thinking when I packed to come here. Skirts? T-shirts? Was I out of my mind? Clearly, my year in the US eroded my ability to think in a commonsensical manner. These past few days have been freezing cold. In fact, as I walked to work several mornings ago, I saw snow flakes falling from the sky. Snow flakes. In June. If I were back home in DC, I'd be lucky not to see steam rising off the streets due to the sheer heat and humidity. Still, it makes a nice change not to walk to work and arrive completely drenched in sweat. It is rather unpleasant to start the work day off feeling disgusting.
