So we were in Glasgow yesterday (man and I). It's not somewhere we get to very often but, considering it's November, it was a lovely day so mostly we just did strolling around and looking at things in the city centre. A lot has been done in recent times to clean up Glasgow's centre and you would have to say that a lot of it is looking very smart and spruced. It always reminds me of Leeds in some ways... and yesterday, with all the hills, it even made me think of San Francisco a little (that might sound odd but I think if you added in some streetcars and a few hundred thousand tourists you might see the resemblance too).
Anyway I'm too weary to write much today but here is a mini tour (some photos by me, some by him). First (above and below) the views from our lunch on West George Street:
And then some views from further up West George Street (I know these are similar - I can't decide which I like most):
One for a regular visitor:
And then just another view:
Here are a couple in Blythswood Square:
Here's one in the CCA (Centre for Contemporary Arts) on Sauchiehall Street:
This one is outside the famous School of Art on Renfrew Street:
Then down on Buchanan Street the front of Princes Square is pretty fancy:
Next door looks like this:
More of Princes Square:
A bit of Xmas cheer on Argyle Street:
And then several cocktails and a good meal later here we are on our way back to the train station... first on George Street:
And then in George Square (full of protestors not so long back - just a Xmas tree there now... but that photo was a bit fuzzy...):
And now we're home again.
