Walked to the University to see the Cloisters which are beautiful-recommend.
Laid down on the lawn in front of the cloisters because I was exhausted from jet-lag-highly recommend.
Day 2: Breakfast at Matilda’s on Byers Road, down from Oran Mor. Really good food-breakfast and service-highly recommend.
Glasgow Botanical Gardens-beautiful-highly recommend
Took Subway to Buchannon Street and walked to the Necropolis and the Cathedral. I thought both were okay. My 18 year old niece and mom loved the necropolis and Cathedral.
Kelvingrove Museum-Rennie Mackintosh Exhibit was great-highly recommend
Roots Fruits and Flowers for a snack-cute little grocery store and then
Mother India for dinner-delicious, amazing service and food. My mom, niece and I love Indian food and eat it frequently in various places in Southern California. We all agreed that this was the best Indian food we ever experienced.-highly recommend (make a reservation-it was packed on a Tuesday night at 7:00)
Day 3-ate at Matilida’s and walked though the Botanical Gardens again. Loved both!
Took subway to Buchannon Street and walked around. Loved it.
Got a donut at Tantrum Donuts-niece highly recommends
Walked to the People’s Palace, very interesting exhibits on the history of Glasgow. -recommend.
Took subway to have tea and lunch at Tchai-Ovna House of Tea. My niece and I agreed that we both had the best tea here. I ordered a pot of traditional Indian Chai. It was by far the BEST chai tea i’ve ever had. The flavors were so spot on. She had an Oolong which she also loved. We ate lunch too. It was pretty good food for a college-type of hang out spot. My mom was not into it. It’s a bit dirty but the guys working there were really sweet and the food tasted fresh and yum! (plus we scored a seat outside)-recommend.
Went to Oran Mor for drinks and to watch semi-finals of World Cup. All of us loved the atmosphere, both inside and out and I wish there was a place like this here in Santa Monica.-highly recommend.
