to enjoy the view..
The reflection of the bridge on the river water is like a big mirror.
At last, we reached Edinburgh, the city where I dreamed to be. It is really beautiful, and historic.
We took a little time to settle down in the hotel, and rushed out to enjoy the scenery. Edinburgh is totally awesome! I was shipped back to the years before.
The temperature below zero was totally not an obstacle for us. Wrapped in thick jacket, gloves and muffler, we perused all streets, and this is the Scott Monument at Princess Street, and at the corner of Royal Scottish Exhibition hall we took a hike to
and arrived at General Assembly Building. The lightings were amazing.
but we stopped to indulge the architecture of the Register.
This is the full view of Register building. Also from there we can see

I did check the map. My feet were turning into jellies, but
look, the end was not yet been seen! Madre mia!
Lucky the were many crooks and nooks to be discovered and
we even found an amusement from the 'shocking pink' black cab. What a tour!
When we finished our so call scrutinizing, the sun already set. We were hungry and OMG! We forgot to take lunch. So, off we went to fill our stomach, and then back to the hotel and sleep till next morning. Another day completed.
