91. Edinburgh really is beautiful. I was in Edinburgh one day, and then...
I went to Glasgow the next. What a difference! (Not a knock to Glasgow, but it's a working class city whereas Edinburgh has some really beautiful buildings in it. The energy's really different, in my opinion.)

The big thing that I remember about Edinburgh is walking through a small park that was available to anyone, and there was no graffiti or vandalism of the beauty that was in the park. I kept thinking that we could never keep a park like this in the US -- it would be ripped apart in a week. I'm generalizing and maybe things have changed since I was last in Europe (1998), but Europeans really seem to not vandalize their countries' national treasures. It made me happy for them and sad for Americans.

Long story short: I also really liked Edinburgh Castle and Edinburgh.
