We met Matthew Davies for tea at a place called Tigerlily. Matt is an Episcopal church staff person who resides in Edinburgh with his family. He is kind and is a wealth of knowledge -- he gave us a wonderful suggestion for dinner! He also is a really nice man. It was great to spend some time with him.
