Great times all through August and well into September.
After arriving in the city with Birke and a short stop at a pub, we took the walk up Arthur's seat to see the city outstretched all around
It was here we spent the first few nights.
I quickly started doing some of the things written on the map;
The royal mile,
The greyfriers bobby,
And spent some time on Cramond island
Once the festival started, so to did a wonderful atmosphere with people from every end of the earth, I found voluntarily work at the forest cafe, the people that I met here every day changed my life and challenge my ideals, along with a wide range of entertainment, music, poetry, and plays to keep all who ventured into the capital for this famous month. To keep me alive for the month, as well as the Forest cafe, I worked on a farm in South Queensferry they were happy to supply me with food for the days i spent hoeing or digging. I met a man, Steve, who seemed very keen to make a documentary about my life. I don't think I'm doing anything special because its something that anyone could do if they wanted to, but he did start work on it and the Pilot is available on Youtube: The Power Of Mhee.
Once the festival ended i still could not drag myself away from the new friends that I had made and the work on the farm. But in the end Birke left for Germany and I too saw that the time had come to move on.
I met so many people the last couple of months if I was to write about everyone this blog would turn into something akin to a phone book, but I love all please know I think of you all as I write this.
So long Edinburgh, So long Birke, So long everyone I hope we can meet again soon
