Just got back from Edinburgh where I observed that

Just got back from Edinburgh where I observed that:
There are noticeably more men with beards than there are in England.
There is a glut of very old, very thin, bent-over women who walk around very slowly. They wear eccentric clothing, such as pink rain hats in good weather, and they are very, very tiny.
Traffic lights stay on red much longer than in England. They must of course also stay on green much longer, but I am too busy speeding along to observe that.
There are large grey-backed seagulls that stand on the heads of statues of famous people. {Word to the wise - do not become famous and have your statue erected in Edinburgh unless you like the idea of your statue having a guano-white face.}
