Edinburgh immediately had a different vibe and feel to it than Dublin. It reminded me more of a classical ballet while Dublin’s energy was more like an Irish folk dance. Both were wonderful, just very different. We also have fantastic friends/business associates who live in Edinburgh, so we spent lots of great time connecting with them in this beautiful city.
Our first night in town, we went out for wonderful Mediterranean food at Meze Meze with a couple we know from Atlanta—Stan and Elizabeth Dulemba. They moved to Edinburgh nine months ago to experience international living while E is getting her master’s degree. (Check out Elizabeth’s great Tedx Talk, “Is Your Stuff Stopping You?“) We know this fun, artistic, and intelligent couple from my husband Prescott’s illustration connection with the Society for Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators.
