After a restful sleep (must be fresh air from having window open in bedroom), and breakfast, I left hotel for a very long walk to George Square to board Hop On Hop Off Bus Tour. Very hilly in Glasgow and St Vincent's Plaza is extremely hilly go up one and down and up another that seemed steeper than the last. No seats to sit down on way being in …
... the Marriot. Bob and I walked up town- it's a wild place! The youth are exceptionally loud, wear a lot of makeup (even the boys). We witnessed the police giving a dressing down to a couple of boys- looked like they'd been harassing an older guy.(that's what I think) The older women are all "mutton dressed as lamb" with suntans that looked they'd all gone wrong.

I was too tired to climb all the way back up to buy a spoon so I got her a magnet instead. Don't make the same mistake you souvenir hunters out there!
