You’ve probably heard about the most recent vote in the United Kingdom, quite historic stuff I’m living amidst these days. I worked at the Royal Highland School (RHS) at the Alumni stand and I must say that was the single most popular topic of conversation. I’ve yet to talk with anyone in favor of Brexit. The RHS is the biggest agriculture show in the UK and people from all over come to network, learn more about new farming techniques and equipment, watch animal judging and shows, shop at the craft and arts tent, eat lots of food, etc. Basically it’s really full of people and it was a miracle I found my post!
Going to Glasgow
On Monday I took the train to Glasgow to visit a friend. I’d heard that there was quite a distinction between Edinburgh and Glasgow and it was interesting walking around and seeing the difference in person. It seemed a little rough around the edges, more of an industrial area. We ate lunch at this German restaurant called Bavaria Bauhaus…we started with these fried melty cheese ball things (I can not for the life of me remember their name, but they were delicious) followed with pork bratwursts, yum! Glasgow is more spread out and so we were able to easily walk off our lunch visiting the People’s Palace, Glasgow Cathedral, George Square and the City Chambers. We finished off our venture with a drink at a local tavern.
Not sure I will ever be able to get enough of riding the train. I love the watching the world whirl past. I love watching the cloud’s shadows move across the rolling green hills. I love the I especially love when it’s almost empty so I can stretch out my legs and just get lost in my thoughts.
