#11 EDINBURGH CASTLE
NEMO ME IMPUNE LACESSIT
Edinburgh Castle was on a rock hill higher than almost entire city, and I loved to stay there for hours just trying to recognize all the buildings I knew.
The motto of Scotland on castle gate meant “No one can harm me unpunished” in Latin.
It was far from any motto that I’ve seen in my own culture; therefore, I was intrigued.
This sentence certainly reflected the history of this tough land. However, seeing it at the peculiar time of pandemic, I was caught by mixed feelings from the complicated contradiction in human nature.
