I went to Glasgow yesterday with some new friends from New College. I was the organiser but hadn’t reckoned on there being a football international at Hamden that day. Nonetheless it went pretty well. I mapped out several used book shops for us to visit. I picked up two relevant to my research at my favourite shop, the chaotic ‘Voltaire and Rousseau’ bookshop near Otago St. The others picked up another handful of books. We also visited the GOMA and Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum in the city’s Westend. I remember visiting Kelvingrove before and seeing Dali‘s awe-inspiraing painting of Jesus on the Cross (El Cristo de San Juan de la Cruz).

Overall it was a fun day and since Scotland won the footy no-one was beaten up!
