I spent two excellent days in Glasgow hanging out with new friends. The city is totally decked out for the holidays. Although I like Edinburgh, I like Glasgow more. With its gritty hometown feeling and friendly people, Glasgow reminds me of Memphis, TN. Edinburgh with its pristine buildings, always dressed up for tourists, reminds me of Nashville, TN. I guess if I had to choose between the two, I would choose to live in Glasgow.
Earlier in the day, I had tea at the famed Willow Tea Room designed by the Scottish artist, architect and designer, Charles Rennie Mackintosh. After tea I met Elaine Davidson, the most pierced woman in the world. And although I took two photos of her, somehow her wild aura refused to allow the camera too work properly (either that or I need a new data card).
I am now back in chilly Crieff where I will work most of the day. But, I may also go for a walk later today since it is so gorgeous out today.
