Glasgow was hurried, smoky and dusty on the Friday morning that I arrived. Locals jostled to get to work amidst the weekend shoppers on Style Mile. Yes, you heard me – Style Mile :) While I giggled at the parallelism of this name with Edinburgh’s Royal Mile (though they are miles away from each other in spirit, pardon the pun), I was also immensely happy to be among the Scottish locals. THIS is what I really needed – something to strongly anchor in my head that regardless of either being a tourist or seeing a zillion of them, life goes on as normal and we are all the same at the end of the day. It was refreshing!
It is the largest city in Scotland. A city with history ,it has a character of its own. A little different from the metropolitan cities elsewhere but also similar in a lot of ways. It reminds one of a bygone era and at the same time keeps them in the present.
