Location: Glasgow, Scotland


Took the train from Oxford to Glasgow and then found y way to Bothwell ( for someone who has always had a car I am doing ok on Public transport) I stayed there with an Aunt - fabulous food, not only meals, there is also morning, afternoon teas and supper - and lots and lots of choice. Nice just to stay somewhere and not be hunting for a place to sleep.

Walked the town, it's still great, when we were there in 1989 it was the European City of Culture.

Visited the newly reopened Kelvinhall art gallery and museum. After Vicci's tutoring in Madrid I am getting to enjoy a little looking at such things. I knew that Dali's Jesus ?of St. John is there so saw that. The plan was to see that and then go and find the fossell forrest, luckily I re-asked the lady at the desk for directions and she knew that it was closed, so at he gallery I stayed and really enjoyed the display for children on how to look at art and design. Actually there were no children there but heaps of adults getting into the interactive displays.
