Scotland's national treasure. Here's a bronze of him in St. George's Square. His name was the only one I recognized...
Today has been a day full of little adventures so far. I guess I should probably start with last night...
For those of you who were talking to me last night the 'annoying Germans' turned out to be 'annoying Russians'. It was pretty entertaining to watch them but entertaining turned awkward when the two guys got into a lover's quarrel. Picture two skin head Russians drunk and yelling at each other in Russian coupled with shoving each other into chairs and heated kissing...yeah... So after trying to tactfully ignore them for half an hour or so I decided it was bed time 😊
Ended up in bed around 2ish, woke up wide awake at ten to 7. I'm attributing my fabulous sleep to the fact that no one shared my room last night 😊 YAY!!!!
So being up that early and having nothing else to do since the library didn't open till 9 I decided to go exploring. I heard that Glasgow Cathedral was a pretty nice place to visit so I asked at the front desk how long it would take to get there. They said about ten minutes walking which sounded like a
A war memorial for Scottish soldiers who died during WWI and WWII
pretty sweet deal. So I started walking...and walking... and walking...
Three hours later I arrived at the cathedral. I sort of got lost along the way and also took some time out to take a mini tour through the financial district, around St. George's Square and then some random church I saw along the way called St. Mungo's (I've posted up pics). You know me - I love my old churches 😊
Today is also FANTASTIC weather wise! I can't believe how nice it is! The temperature is hovering probably around 20 and it's bright and SUNNY! *happy dance* Now that I've taken a bit of a tour around in the sunshine Glasgow doesn't seem as dreary as it did before. It's rather nice actually.
I'm just taking a break from the archives at the moment to get lunch but the research is going well. I think I'll be done most of it by today which leaves all day tomorrow for essay stuff. Katie and I are going to head to the better shopping center (since apparently the one I went to yesterday is the ghetto one) to see if we can find some nice things to
Inside the random old church
This is the place I found when I got lost. I think it was called St. Mungo's. The floors were made of wood and were REALLY old.
wear to the bar Friday.
I also picked up a couple souvenirs during my travels today. Sara I think you'll like one in particular I found just for you 😊 Not telling what it is though hahahaha
Alright well I'm gonna head out. I'll talk to you all soon!
