Used Bus Shelter

This morning I walked to the bus stop and saw this:

bus stop
Yes, that's a bus stop shelter. A bus stop shelter that wasn't there yesterday!

And look at this, my friends:
Yes, our neighborhood gets a used bus shelter.

I'm all for reusing and recycling, but this is just kind of sad. Couldn't they have cleaned off the graffiti and buffed the seats before they put it in?

Apparently not, as we live in the "bad" neighborhood. I hear it's a lot nicer than it used to be, and I feel safer at night than other places I've lived, but I guess it's hard to get rid of a bad reputation (the abandoned car park can't help matters I suppose).


Yes, the Edinburgh Fringe Festival is still going on. There's less than a week to go though. Already the crowds are thinning. The leafletters more lethargic.

But look, you can actually navigate through the Royal Mile without feeling like you're at a rock concert.

Or rather without feeling like you're at an energetic rock concert.

This also means you can play "who's the actor" from a decent distance away.

Today we saw our second-to-last show, The Ukulele Project. Yes, I still think ukuleles are awesome. No, I haven't been practicing as much as I should.

And this picture doesn't have anything to do with the post, I just think it's cool.
