I’m not often around for “events” – so when I realised that the Olympic Torch Relay was going to be passing just up the street from where I’m living in Bruntsfield, Edinburgh, I just had to pop along.

There was a wee bit of a build up…

Even some strategically placed advertising for one of the many Indian restaurants around these here parts…

… cool truck, but if truth be told, my favourite local sub-continental restaurant is The Gurkha on Morningside Road. Yum.

The first bus passed with some of the torch-bearers within…

and then… no time for photos – I knew it would all go so quickly.

OK, so it’s not the castle – but I figured that this is more personal for me – check out the local fishie that I occasionally visit… the “Globetrotter” – could there be a more appropriate setting for the all-global Olympic Games??
