I am in the midst of my adventure in Scotland. We spent about a week on the island of Iona, which is quite a unique place that deserves it’s own post upon further reflection and time on a computer (because right now I only have bits of time). After some more traveling, from ferry to bus to ferry to night in an Oban hostel to a train to a van ride, we arrived in Pitlochry, Scotland. We’re staying at a center in the back of the Pitlochry Baptist Church and we will be doing work with the church for the next 10 days. It’s currently raining for one of the first times here, so I now feel like I’m really in Scotland. The trip has been absolutely amazing thus far and I have tons of stories. But not tons of computer time. So we shall see.
So I’ll leave with a random quote from the day:
During a play of monkey in the middle/keep away with a ping pong ball:
“All’s fair in love and keep away from the short people.”
Oh, and anyone expecting me to come back with a Scotish accent may be disappointed. It’s more likely that I’ll come back with a Minnesota accent, because that has become the accent of choice for a few of us. I have no idea why, it just started happening….we’re odd like that. We’ve been having a splendid time together as a team and lots of funny things have happened. Don’t worry, there will be stories.
