The Days Are Just Packed!!!*
Day one. 30 January 2005:
First flight cancelled (thank you, airlines. When will someone get those things working?). Met two of my great-grandfather’s college athletes on the plane, then say next to a Sunni Muslim pediatrician named Rajj from Kashmir who married a Catholic woman and was sorry to hear that I was going to be going to India during the dead of summer.
Day Two. 31 January, 2005:
Still traveling, but with a completely busted-up suitcase (once again, thank you, airlines) and some new friends from across the country which, I’m happy to say, enjoy pub-crawling in Edinburgh and meeting Scottish friends as much as I do.
Day Three. 1 February, 2005:
After a jet-lagged half-day in Edinburgh, the 75 Americans on the Butler Scotland program were treated with a full day of orientation, during which I learned…
1) Aye means yes or always in Scotland.
2) Aye right means no.
3) Aye right means yes, always.
More on Days 3-6 soon…
