|In Glasgow, even brides wear black|
The next day we make a big decision to cancel the Edinburgh side-trip and stay in Glasgow - I think Chris is in love.
|Glasgow Art School has major development happening (like COFA in Sydney)|
|Beautiful Kelvingrove Park|
We are excited by:
Charles Rennie Mackintosh designed Glasgow School of Arts - we luck into a 'test' tour of Glasgow city architecture, led by Glasgow School of Arts students, and most of the testers are students too. It's a lot of fun, and a great intro to the city.
The museums - St Mungo's at the cathedral presents a global range of religious art and artefacts, Kelvingrove has everything from stuffed animals to French impressionists and of course lots more Rennie Mackintosh, the Burrell collection has stunning collections of art and artefacts from antiquity to 20th century.
- Lunch at the Centre for Contemporary Art - a very groovy urban redevelopment where a courtyard between buildings has been roofed. Excellent vegetarian cafe, contemporary shows of art and cinema, and 'cultural' studios.
- Supper at Rogano's - art deco 'oyster bar'.
- Best meal - Charcoals - South Indian Tandoori & curries - the best Indian food we've had for years.
|Cafe at CCA|
|The art school City Tour group|
|Going gothic at the Necropolis|
Walk along the river's edge in the city - urban renewal has been attempted but there's a way to go - it's grimy, gritty and a bit scary.
Saturday night in Merchant City - it's kind of like the Rocks in Sydney, 'hens' night outings abound, and it's bogan city.
After five days we have explored quite thoroughly and are ready for the next adventure.
