MYSTERIUM FIDEI

Most people who visit this fine city of Edinburgh will no doubt 'do' the Castle, the Royal Mile, Holyrood Palace, and - maybe even Rosslyn Chapel (which is in fact worthwhile, and not just for the DVC obsessives). However, I'd also like to suggest the little-known and extremely creepy and mysterious 'Children's Village' at Humbie, about 20 minutes' drive to the east. It was the most excellent suggestion of my good friend Michael who now lives in the vicinity. If you can't make it in person, please have a look at this series of perturbing images, and thus without further commentary, I'll let you while away a pleasurable hour or two conducting your own research into what devilish happenings took place and its deeper and darker secrets therein.

That's creepy. Not far from where I live there's all these old buildings that used to be an insane asylum at the turn of the last century. The place got closed down when it came out the staff was abusing the patients. Supposedly the place is haunted. I'm not sure about that, but the buildings look very creepy at night when the sun is setting. Last I heard they were going to be converted into condos or something. No respect...

Happy Birthday. "Old" friend. Hope you're enjoying the day as usual. Glad that you'll hit fifty before me. Fucking hell.

Well , despite the introduction and the photos i did expect some kind of happy ending but the little time searching brings the reality . Obviously too depressing or obscure for a documentary yet. Don't you think it has a Soviet touch about it all ? Apart from them pesky Christians being involved .Again .

There are yet more pictures to be found at http://www.turbozutek.f2s.com/thumbnails.php?album=29 - there is nothing whatsoever happy about this place.
