Off to Edinburgh
As I mentioned quite a while ago, my sister has qualified as a surgical Registrar (I don't know the equivalent US title, but it means she's the lead surgeon in operations). She's since also qualified as a specialist Registrar in orthopedics, but tomorrow she formally loses her title 'Dr.' in exchange for 'Ms.' (or 'Miss', if she prefers!), in a ceremony at the Royal College of Surgeons, Edinburgh. For reasons of historical professional rivalry, UK surgeons are distinct from medical doctors, so bear the different title.
This will also be an opportunity to explore a city I've never visited for more than an hour or so. I'm taking the camera!
See you on Sunday.
