Say, I spent a year there when I was an undergrad. I loved it.
Lived in Ewing house in - what was it called - South Halls? Do you know any
of the English literature faculty? I've wondered what became of a couple of
them. I don't suppose Edwards has survived the decade.... A fantastic
university library as well - and that wild Beltaine on Calton Hill - does
that still go on? I've always said I would go back just for that! I could
still hear it from Ewing House. Duelling bagpipes, guys painted blue,
jumping over coals, huge bonfire, everyone dancing - it was amazing. Oh,
you are so lucky despite the brute Latin! Aiee, it was so long ago I've
even paid back the loans. Okay, okay - I'm done with raving about the salad
days (the ale, chips & vinegar days?).
