Imagine going to a place as a tourist and constantly being stopped when you pull your map out... by people saying in a charming Glaswegian accent "Ah ken glasgow better than that map, whar you headin?" This happened four times in the day we were there. Lovely people, felt like being in Manchester. Buchanan Bus Station past 10 feels a bit horrible but hey ho we survived!
In Glasgow...

Glaswegian - Need help?
Me - Yes please, by the way are you going to rape and knife me?
Glaswegian - No, we're not in Paisley!

A city of extremes. In one day you can view the original Salvador Dhali Christ painting, spend the afternoon wandering the chic boutiques and vintage shops of the west end and then get chased by neds "doon the gallowgate" and consume more saturated fat in one meal than you ever thought possible.

Glaswegians have a fantastic sense of humour though and are overall extremely friendly and enjoy a bit of banter.
