If you're in Edinburgh in August there's no avoiding the Fringe festival taking place on seemingly every street corner around.
The real excitement though is on a small section of the Royal Mile - closed to traffic for the duration and taken over by drama companies and comedians trying to convince the passers-by that theirs is THE show to catch....even if they have to resort to slightly bizarre methods to catch your attention!

I did get round to attending two 'proper' shows (more later) but could easily have spent all my time wandering around here with witches, jugglers, an invisible man, dancers, musicians, a random pig-rocker and the seemingly obligatory dead body!
