Chloe is nineteen years old but will turn twenty this week. She is lovely, intelligent and enthusiastic and the grand neice of one of my oldest friends who aked me to take her for a tour yesterday. She is a California girl who was born in Oregon and she fell in love with Edinburgth at first sight. I spent three hours in her delightful company and it was a very pleasant experience. I also introduced her to the delights of Cullen Skink which she declared to be the best meal she had had since coming to the UK (apart from Pop’s steak pie).
