Christmas in Edinburgh

Nicole only spent one full day in Edinburgh and that was Sunday, November 27th. A lot of our day was filled with going to British shops that Nicole could not get in Russia. In the afternoon, we had champagne afternoon tea at the Caledonian. 

It was definitely the best afternoon tea I've had so far in the UK. 

Later, we went to the Christmas fair on Princes Street. Nicole had never been on a ferris wheel before, so we did that. It was a great view of the city at night! 

The view from the top of the ferris wheel:

The Christmas fair is really fun. They have rides, but there are also carriage rides, mulled wine, roasted chestnuts, and so on. It's very typical for European cities to put have fairs and markets in December, but Edinburgh is supposed to have one of the best Christmas calendars.
