Scotland- Day 1

So it's actually like Day 0.5. Or to be honest, I'm having trouble figuring out what day it is exactly. Juliet Main, Dave Clark, Ryan and I left DC yesterday at 6pm and landed in Edinburgh at 10am this morning. Our official reason for being here is the Unplugged Europe Conference, but we are also planning to do some sightseeing when that's over.

Today, Ryan and I played tour guide to some pastors who probably knew the city better than we did. We met folks at the train station and walked them to their hotels. We soaked in some of the Fringe Festival street performances. And we attended the welcome session of Unplugged Europe.

Had a blast hanging out with Dave and Kate Schmidgall and Michael McNamee and enjoyed getting to know some great new friends.

Looking forward to the conference tomorrow...

Don't forget to eat some shepherd's pie and some haggis. Our Scottish heritage is definitely seen in some of the foods our older relatives have eaten over the years. The American version of haggis is very similar to chitterlings (which all of the older Berry relatives loved.) And my Pop (Gran's father) always made some when he slaughtered a hog.

Happy Anniversary (August 21st) Ryan and Heather! Wow, it has been 4 years !?! Way to celebrate ... in Scotland ... (with ministry conference, of course) ... unplugged conference, not unplugged marriage. Hooray!

Had Shepherd's Pie was awesome! Not eating haggis, no way.

Thanks, Christina!
