Monday we spent the morning at Stevenson College. We had two lectures that were very informative in regards to getting a job in the United Kingdom. It was insteresting to hear the similarities and the differences. For example, the refer to resumes as CV's. A great deal of the information presented was along the same lines as the information we teach in Office Systems and Procedures. Everyone at the college has been great and very helpful.
We left Stevenson and headed back to the Royal Mile. Deanna Morris and I had lunch at Frankenstein's, a really neat place on George IV Street. We almost lost track of time when we realized it was 2:05 and had to be at the Scotland Parliament at 2:20 for our scheduled tour. We made it but it was close, thank goodness, the Parliament is located at the bottom of the Royal Mile so it was all down hill. The tour of the Parliament was very informative. The building itself is such a debate in Scotland. Some think it's quite an eye sore, while others appreciate the contemporary architecture. I haven't quite decided. It's very different and looks nothing like anything else in Scotland. Since it sits across from Holyrood Palace, I can only imagine what the Queen must think. After the tour, I hiked up Author's Seat. The views are amazing and I couldn't get any of the students to join me.
