The home of my birth & the city I returned to has many faults but unloved it.
Over the years I’ve seen it change from a dark & dirty city to a vibrant one. One with music festivals from Celtic Connections to Stag n Dagger. Cultural festivals like Refugee Week grow and we’ve not stopped as the Commonwealth Games come to us in 2014.
The city is wonderful to walk round and has lots of smaller centres which have their own characters. I do love the parks, which thanks to our forefathers, are numerous. I might moan about the public transport but with bus, train & tube you can get to any area; just remember to plan your journey.
We are getting into coffee culture with afternoon tea becoming popular again although the range of pubs will never cease to astound me.
Glasgow is also becoming more multicultural with folk coming here to live, work or study and this is positively impacting on the variety of restaurants to eat in and shops. This makes me happy.
I would challenge anyone not to find something fun or interesting to do any week of the year as the theatres are packed, the sports stadiums are yay and if shopping is your thing then this is your city.
