Dalry Road

Sprinting down Dalry Road, I was blocked by a procession of policemen, horses, and kilmarnock fans.

Two odd sights. The first was me running (nay, sprinting) down Edinburgh’s Dalry Road at 5:28pm, in the desperate hope of buying four male-to-female 2 metre VGA cables. The second was the fact I was blocked from entering Maplin Electronics by a procession of policemen and horses, escorting despondent Kilmarnock fans back to Haymarket station. I do not know whether it was them or the Hearts fans who were threatening trouble, or whether that sort of close protection is standard for a Saturday afternoon.

Whether it is the creation of a ridiculously complex video playout system, or the communal viewing of a ball being kicked around a field, we humans take our leisure time very seriously.
