Twisted back, getting the hang of it, and yup, more rain.

The Wandering Nerd August 11th, 2007

Okay, sleeping on a loveseat sucks donkey ass, I think my back and shoulders are now fused. I ended up sitting out on the stoop talking to a guy from Florida, Ian, about traveling. He’s doing essentially the same thing I am, though on the other side. He’s almost 50, had the wife, kids, job and everything and is now trying it. I’m going at it from the other end. Really good guy and I ended up giving him some pointers. It’s a bit odd to be ‘old hat’ at this stuff now, but it’s kinda’ cool that I’m not a pn3wb anymore. Though waking up with a number strange creaks and pops wasn’t all that good, I’m glad to have hung out with the guy.

The weather has gone back to shite. Rained all day. Israel, Ximena, and I went around to Glasgow University, and a few museums. One of them was the Hunterian Museum. More medical/science based with a large collection of early physician instruments as well as a large Kelvin exhibit. I took some more video, just not sure how to best convert it from .avi to .flv to put it up on here. I had a little unix script that would do it, but that box is long since gone I’m sure.

*UPDATE* Video:



There’s not much to add to the photos from today, as it’s pretty straightforward. Tomorrow I head to Edinburgh, where hopefully they’ll have wi-fi so I can actually post all of this.

    As usual… my timing is too little, too late. I wish I would have told you to visit the Willow tea room. There are actually two of them in Glasgow. They were designed in the (rectilinear) art nouveau style by Charles Rennie Mackintosh in the late 19th century. Anyway… if you are back in the area they are located ot: Sauchiehall Street and Buchanan Street. Here’s a link… http://www.willowtearooms.co.uk/today.htm

    Have fun in Edinburgh!

    I’ll just be glad when you get to a part of Europe that has women in it. Your camera seems to be working fine on inanimate objects. =)
    You shared a hostel with a hen party and no pictures of that. Where’s your love for a brother, man?
    You need an air drop for anything? If so, lemme know and I can get you whatever shipped out to a hostel or something.
    Be safe.
    Hosh
