August

August in Edinburgh - the streets fill with madness! Especially the Royal Mile, which becomes Fringe Festival headquarters, but there are Fringe venues all over town. I've spent quite a bit of time in the last two weeks watching buskers, collecting flyers, and dodging performance artists. I think I've seen over 20 shows so far - some free, some ticketed; some brilliant, some terrible, and everything in between. The atmosphere is wild out there. It's good fun, but exhausting!

I realized that I hadn't taken any pictures of the madness, so I went down for a little while today. Here's a little taste. Imagine you're stuck in slow-moving crowds, while people in weird costumes keep trying to hand you leaflets.

(I even have some knitting progress to show, but more on that soon!)
