Visit to Edinburgh

I took a day trip on the train from Glasgow to Edinburgh to meet with three electrical enginneering professors who were interested in using my computer program. Photos from the trip. It was very windy and cold outside., but we managed OK. Had a good meeting and lunch.

Tried to take a photo of some typical houses, but it was raining and the train was moving too fast
