A place to stop for hot chocolate when the streets are mobbed is the corner cafe, Black Medicine. (Beth Criado-Band / YJI)


Thankfully, there was an empty table and a socket at the cafe. (Beth Criado-Band / YJI)


Even Lidl, a local supermarket, was full, with queues to the back of the shop. All this journalist wanted was a wee pastry. (Beth Criado-Band / YJI)

Gazing away from Festival Fringe and toward Arthur’s Seat, Edinburgh looks the same as it always does  – peaceful. (Beth Criado-Band / YJI)

If you don’t have a golden postbox nearby, you can make a tax-deductible donation to Youth Journalism International online. Thanks!
