Yesterday we joined thousands of Scots in Inverness to celebrate Guy Fawkes day. In short, a guy tried to blow up British Parliment in the 1600's, he and some of his accomplices were caught and killed, (Fawkes jumped from the gallows and broke his neck before they could hang him)and his foiled attempt is still celebrated with tons of fanfare. Kathleen, a girl doing work similar to ours in Nairn, Scotland, showed us around Inverness. We froze together, and enjoyed the rediculously huge bonfire. After the bonfire had burned down a bit, they had a pretty impressive fireworks display.
Can you see the mannequins? Yup, they were burned.
Kathleen's from Memphis. She's been here for 18 months and is leaving next year sometime.
It's hard to see, but an amazingly huge fire.
Self-taken photos, my favorite.
