@SusanB I lived in Edinburgh for a few months decades ago. My flatmate was from over near Glasgow. I recall her using the word mingin more than once. 😀

@Miraz How did you like Edinburgh?

@SusanB That was back around 1981. I thought it was a lot like Wellington: cold, wet, windy, hilly. I liked it though. One day I cycled to Glasgow and back for a brief look around. So interesting.

@Miraz I always forget how hilly Edinburgh is. It doesn't matter which direction you're going—you're going uphill, always. That sounds like a fun cycle. It's something I'd love to do…when I've got time…and a bike.
