This past week was “freshers” week here in Edinburgh. The city, having just caught its breath from all the festivals of August, now welcomed new and returning students. This meant a busy week and here’s some pictures from a few of the things Scotty and I participated in.
The annual ceilidh at New College is a great event and this year was a lot of fun. It’s always held at Rainy Hall, which is a great venue for a traditional Scottish dance.
The next event was an afternoon tea at my flat. A group of my friends wanted to welcome the newly arrived wives of some of the New College students so we put on a tea.
It was a really fun afternoon and I think that Amanda, Ashli, Katy, Lauren and I make a good team. We had fun putting it all together, gathering information to help people get settled, and meeting new friends.
On Sunday, we took a hike up Salisbury Crags with some of the new students and a couple of New College veterans.
For both Scotty and me, it was a really fun week full of meeting new people. We’re now a bit tired out and ready to get back to work!
