This morning I woke up relatively early to eat breakfast and explore the city. I walked all around Merchant City, which is in the West End of Glasgow close to the Euro Hostel we are staying in. I also stopped for a coffee in a local coffee shop. By the time I got back from wandering around the neighborhood it was time to meet with the group.
Today we went on a group excursion to the People's Palace which was opened during the late 19th century as a cultural haven for the people who made up the East End of Glasgow. Today it is used as a museum which is meant to preserve the Glaswegian culture. There was also an adjoining winter garden (greenhouse) which was quite enjoyable. It was nice to sit and journal while being surrounded by vegetation.
