Athens of the North

I am in Edinburgh, capital of Scotland this week. I lived here for 4 years during a startup venture a while back. I don't make that many trips to Edinburgh, mainly to see family these days but this week I enjoyed looking at the architecture of the City with new thoughts. The book I read last year 'how the Scots invented the modern world', shed new light on how the city evolved. So, it has been fun visualising the city from the words in the book with my real time view.

One of the central themes in the book with the historical Union of Scotland with England. And by pure coincidence the 300th year anniversary was this week. Just a coincidence?
