A different lunchtime walk today, at Braidburn Valley Park.
Snow Day at Bruntsfield Links
This news story has blown my mind in so many ways.
Firstly, that in 2001 we had the technology to use robots to store cars in a car park.
Secondly, that someone thought to give it a try in Edinburgh.
Thirdly, that this building has existed in a very central location in my city for 15 years and I had no idea about it.
Fourthly, that this prominent location has remained unused for 13 years.
The ‘abandoned’ cars are just the icing on the cake. This is Wall-E territory (although it turns out they were in fact owned by the car park and used as test cars).
Alex and I took part in the torchlight procession today.
Last month, Alex and I were one of 50,000 people to take part in a “once in a lifetime opportunity” to walk over the new Queensferry Crossing.
Now that I am living and working in Edinburgh, I have decided to take up cycling. Unfortunately, I have already managed to injure myself on my bike.
