Two further notes:

- Note the muddy brown water. When the water runs over a falls, it looks like beer. I mentioned this to someone in Scotland, and she replied that if it was beer, no one in Scotland would ever get any work done.

- Guides at various castles and other ruins would try to impress me by how old the sites were. "Thayre boot nahn hunerd yeers owld, I figgers," they would say. To which I would reply, "Pshaw. I live in Jerusalem. Don't bother me unless you have something more than 3000 years old."

Gee, I remember when they tried to tell us that 200 years old was ancient at sites in the U.S.
