By the river is a commemoration to the International Brigade who fought the fascists in the Spanish Civil war.
The walk back to the City centre took us by the Enoch shopping plaza (nothing special) and the Gallery of Modern Art (GoMA).
In the Gallery the stand out work for me was one about Edinburgh places of worship which is made of cardboard it's called The Lamp of Sacrifice and is by the Scottish artist Nathan Coley.
The work was inspired by the 286 Churches, Temples and other places that people use for their religions, made in 2005 it also has a strong connection with Coley's father.
There was a nice neon in the gallery too- Gentleman’s Club (2005) by Colin McCluskie.
There's a bit of Sisyphus in this odd story taken from the Japanese writer Hiroshi Sakurazaka's book All You Need Is Kill.
Food was at a Chinese restaurant (Loon Fung) and very good too, quite old school with big helpings and plenty of tea.
