When we got to the rental car place, they were on costumer ninety and we were number 122.We waited for about an hour and a half, and then went to get our car, and then the man said "oh, and you didn't have to wait in that line."Oh foot!
We had like a 5:50 hour drive.It was really supposed to be just a five hour drive, but the M6 had A TON OF traffic.Same for the intended eight hour and three hour drives.It was pretty much only shopping and traveling, come to think of it.
We DID go to Mary King's Close, though. It's the second widest street in Edinburgh, but it is not used anymore. It was used in the 1600s to the late 1800s. It is "underground" because the streets today are so high. Mary King's Close was built more aligned with the hills, but the streets are much higher today, so they cut part of it off, and built over the rest.One man,the last to live there,had a toilet called a "thunder box". (This was unusual because most people just used a bucket).It was visible if you opened the door to his house, and he was so proud of it that he opened the door to his house whenever he used it!
We got to go to, and get on the Queen's royal yacht,Britannia,since it is no longer in use.It is REALLY BIG,and has over 30 big and normal-sized rooms!Mom says narwhals aren't real, yet there used to be a narwhal tusk on the ship,and this isn't autocorrecting me.
The last thing I learned is that the Scottish flag+the English flag=the Union Jack.
