Edinburgh loose ends [Aug. 16th, 2004|10:41 pm]
Listen in, listen Ian!
Other stuff I did: killed some time looking round the Royal Museum and the Museum of Scotland. I should go back to Edinburgh when it's not the Fringe at some point, there's tons to do that I could do without the distraction of constant comedy shows. The best thing in the Royal Museum was the Millennium Clock.

Also in the Royal Museum I went to the "Go Play Games!" bit of the International Games Festival. I played Doom II for a bit, which was pretty enough but I doubt I'll buy it. The best game was Donkey Konga which seems to be Nintendo's answer to the dance mat, using a pair of bongos. it was great fun, and I will buy this if it actually gets published over here.






The hotel sign blocks the view. Fortunately, it's only the view of the Prince's Mall, possibly the most ill-sited development in any city I've visited.


That's better.

The Millennium Clock does look cool.

I hope that you went upstairs to see the huge whale, and in doing so you got a better look at all the little wooden people that adorn the top of the Millenium Clock. They're obscene!

Ah, no, I saw the whale from below so I only went upstairs to the communications section to see if they had any free internet terminals like some museums do. They didn't.
