I was living for 6 weeks near Glasgow, exactly in Renfrew. It was a work, or better, student trip and it was great. I lived there in YMCA which was very nice and clean, but sometimes a little bit scary.
I was there with five other people, my school-mates. We were four girls and two boys, so the girls lived in one flat which was all only for us, four single-bed rooms, kitchen, bath-room and living room. The boys lived upstairs with two other guys, which were a bit strange.
One of them, an old guy, were probably deaf because his television was always very loud and he was watching it all the time even by cooking. So it become twice that the fire alarm get on because of the smoke from the burnt food and we must wait in front of the building for the firebrigade, which only came to turn off the shrilling alarm.
