So many full days. So many updates. Here is a quick version because we need to go do a show...
Jasp got her period, for reals, so she had low energy. As a result we needed hot chocolate and brownies. Yes, we both needed it. We had a day full of meetings with important and wonderful people.
Our show was was superbly fun and a guy and his two sons that we flyered on the Royal Mile came to the show and they are so nice and they took a photo after the show and he even ordered a book after and they are our new friends and we hope we see them again if we come back next year... (yes that is a run-on sentence).
After our show we went to the big annual So You Think You Are Funny Party at the Gilded Balloon (named after a comedy competition that they have at the venue). It happens every year and so many people are there - they even have a giant pink carpet. We danced the night away and sang 'No Scrubs' with Ed Byrne. It was the MOST fun.
We started off with our final performance on the Royal Mile. Our friends Andrea and Steve were here from Toronto and helped us hand out flyers. After that, our dream finally came true and we found an Italian restaurant that accepted clowns. It was called Civerinos and it was delectable - especially the homemade donuts that they had for dessert.
We flyered more on the Royal Mile and it poured the most ever for about thirty minutes but it was
okay because there was a beautiful rainbow afterwards. The rainbow inspired our show and it was magical. Afterwards we saw Aunty Donna - a wild sketch comedy show that made us laugh a lot.
We finally climbed Arthur's Seat which is called that because it looks like a lion sitting down (even though Jasp kept saying that we were not on the seat part... she was wrong). It was so windy that we could barely stand up but Morro played her bagpipe for a bit and we made a musical ode to Scotland and Edinburgh. We also wrote our name with rocks and saw an ancient ruin and lots of prickly bushes that Morro almost fell into twice.
We were so hungry after so we had Burgers at Holyrood 9A with sweet potato fries - note to self: its not so good to eat that much food on an empty stomach.
After our show we had more delicious food at a place called Checkpoint which actually serves vegetables including wilted greens which were THE BEST! We danced to the music of a wonderful band at the 'Cowshed' which is under one of the bridges on Cowgate. There was hay and it was Morro's favourite place that we have been all month. Jasp had an allergic reaction to the hay so we had to leave pretty soon. Then we went to the Wee Pub - Edinburgh's smallest pub just so we could say that we had been there.
We decided to take in some shows today so we saw Drum Tribe and The Game of You which were both magical in totally different ways. They healed our souls.
After that, we got macarons to inspire us to flyer before the show. We did our show for the second last time and had a wonderful audience which surprised us because at this point everyone is leaving and there are not many people left to see shows.
We hung out with the ridiculously hilarious Mark Forward and then rocked the stage at Massaoke one more time where we saw our friends Jonny Awsum and Ed Byrne again and took photos with them.
We have one more show to go and then apparently there is a big fireworks party to celebrate the end of the festival. We can't wait for the fireworks... and for our show ... and a bit for home. Our hearts are full of love but we are ready to come home.
