A trip to Scotland would not be complete without getting caught in the rain. We were up at 6:00 am to catch our bus and airport shuttle. It was not drizzly, it was raining pretty hard. Thank goodness the bus came early, but 12 people getting on with suitcases is disruptive. We made it to the airport shuttle (after getting on the tram by mistake – different ticket needed), and then to the airport with just enough time to spare to take off long johns and other warm layers for the return trip home.
It was sad to say goodbye to Axel, our Swedish exchange student who had met up with us in Edinburgh. The group enjoyed training with him in Wichita in the Fall, and wishes they could find a way to visit him in Sweden!
