Kilt wearing in Scotland

Well, it was a bit weird. People ask you if "you are a true Scot". That is, if you are not wearing any underwear. I have to say that I was wearing a kilt in a true Scottish fashion: no underwear.

It is not as cold as I thought it would be and it is a cool experiece: girls lift the kilt to check if you are wearing anything and there is a lot of banter. As a chatting up tool is extremely effective, more so when you are a foreigner!

It was the first time for me, but I am positive it will not be the last ;-)

Kilt hire

Despite being from Catalonia (and not from Caledonia), I have decided to hire a kilt (Black Watch tartan, I hope there are not many Sout Africans, Australians, Irakis, etc in the party...) for my employer's Christmas party dinner & dance. I am looking forward to meet my colleagues tomorrow -they don't know anything about it!

A full report of the "kilt wearing" experience on Sunday....

No time

As well as working full-time, I started a part-time MBA last October. That explains why there are no new messages since then.... if that wasn't enough, overtime at work has become routine...what a nightmare.
