I bought all my Text Books while at Edinburgh University at James Thin -
http://www.jamesthin.co.uk/intro.htm - and they now have a good website.
My restaurant recommendations are more than 20 years out of date, but
Valvona & Crolla (18 Elm Row, EH7. Tel: 556 6066) was always the best
Italian, and the Cafe Royal (17 West Register Street, EH2 Tel: 557 4792)
was always good value traditional fare. Outside Edinburgh and near Roslin,
is the Fishers Tryst pub at Milton Bridge which used to be good value.
Have a good trip.
in Buenos Aires again
