Five star whatever
Day Nine of the Fringe and Day One of the Edinburgh International Book Festival, which I have never before been to. So on the day before I leave this lovely city, WhiskyFoxtrot put that right. After a delicious breakfast in her favourite cafe, we listened to Iban Zaldua and James Robertson discuss their conversation-by-letter in Basque and Scots about Europe, identity, language and literature. A thoroughly engaging hour. Thence together to Portobello, the beach and an afternoon of conversation-in-person about all sorts of things.
An excellent way for me to slow down after nine days of frenetic culture-chasing.
