Just a little fun in Glasgow, our very first day there. Sitting in a French bistro, with a couple of lasses enjoying lattes in the rain. The kind of lunch that makes international travel worth the trouble.
We went to several cathedrals, but for me this one was the most impressive. Glasgow Cathedral. One of the few churches to survive the "reformation." I touched an 1,100 year old wooden door in this church. Amazing.
There are a lot of public gravesites in the cities of Scotland. No doubt when I return to the US I'll do some posts on the fabulous Necropolis of Glasgow.
This lovely setting is in Edinburgh, it's the graveyard where 'Bobby" from two posts ago guarded his master's grave. There are walking paths through many of these graveyards, and so the city dwellers just pass all these dead folk by all the time. It's very different from America.
I don't often "blog live" here at the DreamTomorrow blog. Meaning, when I'm on the road, I have pre-loaded the blog with posts that self publish each day while I'm gone. But this being a three week trip, and being so busy before hand, I didn't load up for the whole trip before leaving.
The main reason I don't like blogging from the road is that my laptop is not really photo editing quality. So I don't know if my images are really up to snuff or not. So forgive me if perhaps some of the next two weeks are not quite there, from a post processing point of view.
I'm in Edinburgh, Scotland, as I type this. The cute little guy above is Bobby! You can read about him on his wikipedia page. Get ready for some fun images from Scotland and Ireland.
It's really something to be walking around a building, that is truly fabulous, built about the time ol Chris Columbus set off to find the New World.
This is Cathedral St Giles (see wikipedia page). I know if you are on a long European trip, it can get kind of old looking at these Cathedrals. Happened to me when I spent 4 months overseas in my 20's.
