The story so far....the hotel is pretty modern..and is well equipped for disabled people. So what does Carmen do? She pulls the little red cord next to the shower and sets off the help alarm....it sounded like a fire alarm......anyway...Ana to the rescue and disables the alarm 😊)Feedback to the hotel...put little labels on the cords...We then set off to explore the city ...Carmen says I wonder if its cold. I say, everyone is wearing jackets...but it's sunny....like good Aussie kids, we set out into the streets with just long t-shirts and cardigans...we go out and it's a WEE cold...but we'll brave it ...we decide to walk the whole city...an hour later we are freezing our butts off...we walk to warm up but can't stand it anymore....and we go to a small wine bar Vronis to have wine and soup...ahhhhh....nice soup...Crashed early....we didn't hear a thing...

We wake up ready to explore once more...We learned our lesson this time and jackets and scarfs are worn. We look for breaks fast and the First thing Carmen notices is the FAT FACE store....see picture...(it's a clothing store....not weight watchers lol)Breakfast is a must....big breakfasts are served at the pubs...we had ours at the Counting Hours...I ordered the vegetarian breakfast...note to thyself, never have the sausage yuk...Carmen decided to have the bacon and egg burger...but she forgot to tell them that she wanted egg...so she just got a bacon burger only lol....We then went to go the tourist store and booked our selves a tour for tomorrow. We see a whisky and chocolate tasting tour. And off we go to catch the local number 10 bus and had a great one hour tour of the country side...reached our destination....no we didn't get lost....took whisky tour and learned that good whisky is expensive because it takes four days to make one bottle.(ok more than one but that's how Long it takes)..loved Carmens face every time she drank whisky...she did enjoyed the chocolate...an hour back and just missed the rain...When back at Glasgow. We joined the hop on and off bus....sight seeing was pretty good...At the last minute we decide to book our selves a play....51 shades of Maggie...plays is a send off 50 shades of grey...but this one is house in commission chick meets well off guy...example of lines in play..." I saw his green eyes...and my flaps went on fire", "I was so excited it was like Niagara Falls", " I ain't waxing the muff"...interesting note..there was 6 guys in the whole theatre....Before that we went to the pub ....yes all good food is at pubs...and I had to save Carmen from going I to the guys toilets....it said laddies (man in Scottish)....dam maybe I should have just let her go.... Until tomorrow peeps
