On Friday night we took a brief tour on foot of my home town. And very proud I was too. The friendly city for the friendly games. This is Glasgow, with its best pants on!
The train on the way in, sunshine over the Clyde
A deserted street, no traffic!
Buchanan Precinct, busy with street theatre
Bring it on. Indeed!
He sat very carefully, knees together
These are the beautiful but effective anti terrorism barricades
over entrances to stations etc.
And if you get lost, just follow the lines
In George Sq now, a disrespectful pigeon
James Watt, the steam engine man
paramedics on bikes, a Glasgow cop
We are here, in the big G
George Sq ticket centre
The queue for this bus was round the block
Robert Peel ( we are fond of our statues!)
George Sq looking at the City Chambers
The Hotel where I do all my interviews!
It's right next to Queen St station where the Edinburgh train comes in.
Just to remind you! It's an offence in public.
George Sq looking NE, this was where they filmed World War Z.
This building was American for a fortnight.
A bottle of Buckie..... an empty bottle of Buckie
(an alcoholic delicacy....)
There were loads of these....
The big G
The shop had loads of these left
But few of these
The slightly 'faster than the bike' response squad
Clyde the mascot
Glasgow Central, bedecked in the Commonwealth colours
