Tall One in Scotland

Tall One is in Scotland right now. I must say, I'm rather jealous. He's over there attempting to find vegetarian food and getting photographed by the locals. Yeah, apparently the locals photograph the tourists over there. Who would have thought? Oh yeah, and he's competing with his bagpipe band at the world competition.

I'm rather jealous. And you should be too. He left on August 1st and will be back on the 14th.

Funny thing is, I miss him. I miss having my little brother around. (But don't tell Tall One I called him my "little" brother.) Especially when I know that he's like half way across the world. Nearly half way across the world and having fun with bagpipes.

What do you think? Should I bug him to write some guest posts about his travels when he gets back? Maybe I will. He's having fun and has e-mailed us some neat photos.

I really wish he would bring back some genuine haggis for me to try. But I guess customs would get grumpy if he did. People can't sell the real stuff here in the USA because there's some traditional ingredient (I forget what...I think it's the sheep lung?) that the FDA doesn't like. They probably can't bring it through customs either.

Oh, the lucky bugger! I wonder how easy it will be to find vegetarian fare in Scotland? Don't they deep fry all sorts of weird and suspicious things there?

Good luck to him and his pipe band in the competition!

He brought lots of food from home.

His dorm is near a grocery store.

The drummers fixed pasta for the band and served the meat on the side.

The band missed getting into the finals by 1 point. Heartbreaking, but the profanity uttered about the score sheet from the best drummers in the world boosted their morale quite a bit.

Debra -- I don't really know anything about the food, other than that they don't have peanut butter and I don't *think* it's overly vegetarian friendly.

Mom -- I thought there was also a Subway...

Congrats to his pipe band for doing so well against international competition! They'll make the finals next time, I'm sure.
