patty's excellent adventure-Glasgow day 1

first view of Glasgow, left from st louis at 12:30 pm, flew to chicago, then to london, finally arrived in Glasgow at 12:00 noon the next day. the transfer bus to the hotel waited for me, thank goodness or i would have had to take a cab. this was the first time i traveled by myself and didn't get lost once! the first tour was at 3:00, got to my room freshened up a bit and on to the coach (not a bus according to George our driver and guide). statue of Queen Victoria in George Square
cool looking bridge, built on the diagonal
inside Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, it was beautiful, only had a couple of hours here and it wasn't enough
Kelvingrove Art Gallery
very interesting exhibit, loved the hanging heads, each had a different expression
st. elvis there was 25 travelers on this tour. 11 of them from Kentucky and they took me under their wings. talk about southern hospitality!!! nearly everyone on the tour had Scottish or Irish ancestors
