Oh my aching feet...

Just currently putting my feet up for a while after wandering around the wonderful Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum (after walking the full length of Sauchiehall Street, breaking off to watch what looked like a practice lawn bowls event for the Commnwealth Games (teams from Scotland, Wales, Malaysia, NZ, and Australia in evidence)). There was some slight drizzle in the air when I came out of the gallery, so I made my way to Kelvingrove subway station and took the Outer Circle (the long way round) back to Buchanan Street - my hotel's on the corner of Sauchiehall Street and West Nile Street.

A review of the week so far: Monday was beautiful weather, lots of sun, so nipped over to Edinburgh for the day to catch the end-of-festival crowds. Tuesday, visited the Burrell Collection (surprised by just how small Rodins' The Thinker actually is - I had the impression it was a lot bigger). Just to counter all the culture, after dinner I went to the cinema next to my hotel and saw "We're the Millers"! As the weather forecast for Thursday and Friday was a bit damp, I pulled myself out of bed early on Wednesday and caught the 0903 train as far as Fort William (a 3.75 hour trip, or 5 and a quarter hours if you go all the way to Mallaig; had some five hours to kill in Fort William, walked the length of the High Street (it's not that long...), had a very nice lunch in the Spice Tandoori, interesting visit to the West Highland Museum (recommended), and so back to Glasgow by about 9.20 p.m. ....
