Visit to Glasgow

Rob and I went for a day trip to Glasgow on Monday.

Morning coffee was in the Costa cafe in Waterstones.

Lunch was at Saramago in the Centre for Contemporary Arts, Sauchiehall Street. We had a really delicious mezze platter, with beer for me and fruity cider for Rob.

The platter consisted of roast pepper houmous, baba ghanoush, rocket and seed salad, roast red peppers with capers, enormous marinated olives, dolmades, carrot, coriander and cumin seed salad, griddled aubergines and flatbread. The menu is all vegetarian. With so much choice, we will return another day to try something else. The bill came to £23.25.

After that, we browsed the shops in Sauchiehall Street, with Paperchase being my favourite, for cute stationery items and gifts. John Lewis is also a good place to browse, for clothing and haberdashery.

In the afternoon we went to the Glasgow Musuem of Modern Art to look at the Niki de Saint Phalle exhibition. Her colourful resin sculptures are wonderful.
