In the big city

Not a whole lot to report today. We've been in the largest town in Scotland - Glasgow - for two days. This place is quite different from anywhere we've been so far and it is at the opposite end of the spectrum from the Isle of Skye where we just came from. One thing that Europe does SO much better than we do is public transportation and providing space for pedestrians. Not to mention they have so many sweet little cars. With the exchange rate and we're paying nearly $10 a gallon for fuel here...public transportation is definitely the way to go! I can't even begin to imagine how many miles we've walked this trip and today was no exception.

Here are just some pictures from our time walking around the city.
