Walking Glasgow

Walking Glasgow

Spent all of today walking Glasgow while doing errands.  There was a dual purpose to my wanderings. First I had errands to run, I needed to pick up a few things for the trail. Second, I wanted to walk for at least 5 miles today, I’ll try to do 8 tomorrow as a warm up for starting the West Highland Way on Thursday.

I also needed to find the train station where I’ll be leaving from on Thursday morning.

The streets were lively today and I saw someone taking the art of the one-man, pan flute band to new heights. Not just a pan flute rendition of Funky Town, not just the standard one man band, not just an ankle tambourine, not just a guitar, not just a prop Lama but all that plus three synchronized marionettes.

Again the subtle differences slip in.

Did you spot it?

First full day in the UK so fish and chips with mushy peas were an absolute must. I’m always amazed at how good the fish always is in the UK and Ireland.

Saw some great architecture including this giant metal peacock, sorry it’s a bit hard to make out.

And to be sure, there’s a little weird in Glasgow.

One of the things that has made me happy has been the little punk edges in town. Seems punk is alive and kicking in Glasgow, lot’s of piercing, punk tees, doc martins and a little bit of attitude.

Off to Thai food, have a happy day my friends. – Rev Kane
