Westend of Glasgow
The Westend of Glasgow is my favourite place in the world. It is the student part of town where all the best bars, restaurants, parks, museums and buildings are. It is beautiful during every season, but I think I prefer it during Autumn when I can walk down Kelvin Way with the leaves crunching under my feet. The scent of Autumn here is amazing, especially in Kelvingrove. I miss the friendly people, the warm welcome, the choice of activities, the fantastic art and architecture, the nightlife and above all, the familiarity of Glasgow.
George Square Bake shop.
I want to comment on the bakery shop at the south west corner of George Square, it is called Greggs, I have no photo.
The visit to the square was around 12.30pm, the shop was very very busy, I passed four times in about 20 minutes, as I walked aorund taking photos and going to the Information Centre.
The arrangement inside the bakery appeared to be two lines of people, two queues as they are called in Britain, one line was for lunch time items like sandwiches and a drink, that one went around the walls of the shop, where the prepared foods were loacetd. Then it moved to a cash till and the poeple left.
Another line seemed to be more on the inner section of the store and came to a counter by the window, where all other bakery goods were available, so you could buy some rolls to take home, then pay for them and leave the store.
However it was set up, seemed to work very well, many folks were in George Sq sitting having a sandwich lunch.
