Harry Potter Experiences

Waiting to check out of our Edinburgh hostel, and just wanted to pass along a few HP-relate experiences I've had, fr any of you joining me in counting down the days until book 6 (11!):

Took a double-decker overnight coach full of British folk of all ages, back to London. Knight Bus, anyone? They even served us hot chocolate and lemonade!

Was unable to make it through the ticket barrier to catch my train to school, and watched it pull away. (Ticket wasn't usable before 9:30, so the barrier wouldn't open for us...) Did NOT take a flying car there, instead.

Last night, sat in The Elephant House, the cafe where J. K. Rowling wrote the first book.

So fun!!!

Glad to still see the updates. Looking forward to seeing you soon. Allie is driving back to Texas to get settled in new apartment before flying back here before TC. Much love. Dad

Aaaaah, comes the end of one journey for my perapatetic perambulating granddaughter who perhaps paused in the Peloponnesians hopefully not in a penurious state while she presumed to pensively consider Harry Potter and a nom de plume for her future endeavors...!!!

love Grandpa Fred
