Luckily the weather improved throughout the day and by the time David Guetta played his headline set it was slightly warmer - a caprinaha might have helped, as did seeing my picture on the big screen as part of the Bose #ListenForYourself campaign. On Sunday we explored the city, trying to stay indoors as much as possible! Michelle, Tommy and I explored the modern art gallery which with free entry and four different exhibitions was the perfect cultural antidote to the festival the day before.
Despite the weather I had a super time - it always feels like a much longer weekend doing something completely different and this was only my second trip to Scotland. The people were warm enough to make up for the awful weather - strangers helped us find our way around when we were looking a little lost and a Scottish couple at the gig taught me that "aye" means "yes"! I didn't fancy any haggis at the hotel breakfast buffet but it was good to have another taste of Scotland - I'll bring an extra jumper next time!
|Scottish vending machine! Irn Bru is everywhere - I would have tried some if it wasn't so cold but the bright orange colour does scare me a little (southern wimp, I know).|
|A hotel room bigger than my flat (not difficult). We stayed at the Thistle which was perfectly located i.e. practically next door to the M&S food hall.|

|The city was still decorated for the Commonwealth Games - loved these signs,|
|GoMA was the perfect indoor destination for Sunday morning.|
|Such a beautiful use of an old building.|
|We were mesmirised by this piece of art - a cardboard city comprised only of churches. The artist spend eight hours a day for five months to make this. That's dedication.|
