A Scottish Evening

While in Edinburgh on Wednesday evening, the group had dinner at The Thistle where all enjoyed a traditional dinner of roast beef and fish with pudding for dessert. Entertainment was provided by Scottish bagpipers and dancers.  Dinner concluded with the Ceremony of the Haggis. Haggis is a special dish of lamb's heart, liver, and stomach, cooked with spices. Often haggis is served over potatoes. Most all sampled the dish; some liked it, others did not.

Regardless of their fondness for haggis, the 38 members of the ECC travel group had a delightful evening filled with wonderful food and fellowship and with lots of fun.
