I went to visit a friend in the Royal Infirmary this afternoon.

I had not been there before; it is a big place.

I walked there, through the New Town and Old Town, and then along the Innocent Railway and cycle paths beside Craigmillar Castle Road as far as the hospital. Over four and a half miles in a little over an hour.

I walked back in the dark. The paths were lit, but it was still slightly eerie outside of the pools of light.

Much to my surprise, the Innocent Railway wasn't lit. I have no idea why some cycle paths are lit and others not, particularly since the Innocent Railway was much busier than the paths to the south.

All the bikes that passed were very will lit, though I was slightly concerned that an unlit bike might not see me (also unlit) in the dark.

Aside from the cyclists, there was sufficient light reflected from the clouds to walk by. It was rather nice walking the the semi-darkness, something I hadn't really done before. At least, but without a torch.

It was rather surprising, and a bit of a relief, to get to the long, well lit tunnel; and ironic that, underground, there was more light than outside.
