We had a very slow morning as we were meeting up with Ronnie and Kim for brunch before going to the Hibs (Hiberians) football match in the afternoon. We tried Urban Angle but there wasn’t enough room so we went a few doors south to 99 Hanover Street which served breakfast, sandwiches and roast.
Robin and Katie joined us at 2 p.m. and we set out to walk to Easter Road Stadium.
Paused for a pint for some at the Cork and Barrel. I passed lest I spend the match in a bathroom line up.
Our seats we in the south stands with Aberdeen fans above and behind us and the Hibs fans to the right. We couldn’t figure out most of the chants and songs but the Hibs fans were keens on them and never seemed to sit down.
We left the stadium walking back along Regent Road past Calton Hill and over looking Parliament and Holyrood.
We stopped for a pint at Cafe Royal.
Ronnie left us about 6 p.m. and we went looking for a Thai restaurant he recommended. After wandering a bit about New Town we eventually found Time 4 Thai which had a number of menu items we had not seen before, but very flavourful and not too spicy.
