Lone piper

After my whisky tour, it is the girls' time to shop until they drop. I park the car in the garage at Cambridge street (I made it a habit to take a parking in stead of looking for a place and get fined) in the middle of the centre.

We start with a sandwich at Paninis' (the girls knew that shop from Paris) and I must say it was lovely.
Then we entered the main shopping street and found the biggest "pound shop" yet:)
There is a lone piper in the street and we find a lot of shops we haven't got in Holland (that is nice, not to find Blokker, Hema, Kruidvat in a town, but Marks and Spencer and others:)

We find Glasgow is a great city to spend a long weekend!

On the way back we see a great natural phemomenum: a big black cloud hangs above the coast in the sun. When we are underneath the cloud it rains, no it poors, and soon there is a lot of water on the road, it looks like a small river.
The water comes down from two sides from the highway ramps. Soon there is so much water that we are in until our axels. (The first time I am sorry to drive a sport-line = low instead of a standard = high VW Passat) We continue driving, and see police closing the ramps but we may go on. After some time we enter dry country and can get home like we thought is normal. [I am sorry to say this: Never heard of ditches?] Another day well spent:)
