At the SSC on the Fringe 'Culture Internationale' Japanese Language and Culture show the audience learned basic Japanese, acted in a short sketch using th e Japanese they had learned, and make a Japanese "Kampai!" toast with some Japanese sake (rice wine).

Some of the audience are planning to go to Japan soon, and they found the session a useful preparation for their stay in Japan.

Had a really enjoyable Chinese traditional dance session as part of SSC on the Fringe 'Culture Internationale' at Venue 347. The audience learned some Chinese, performed a short sketch using the Chinese they had learned, enjoyed the show, and then tried the dance themselves. Looking forward to the Japanese show tomorrow night!

I haven't been to Edinburgh Zoo in years. I find it a bit expensive - but a great day out.

Scott Monument

On the death of Sir Walter Scott in 1832, the great and good of the city came together to agree on a fitting monument to this outstanding Scottish literary figure. In 1836, an architectural competition was launched, inviting designs for an appropriate memorial. Two years later, the trustees approved the design submitted by George Meikle Kemp, and construction began in 1840.
