November 14, 2014 – From the office windows

When you look outside my office windows, the first thing you see is…grass. No, I’m not kidding. As our office is situated in the “basement” of a building, we’re at a rather low elevation and our window is at ground level. Hence, when you look out, you see the patch of grass that surrounds the building. At least we can get a decent view beyond the grass so that we don’t seem like we’re hidden in the underground all the time 😛

November 01, 2014 – Necropolis

My exploration of Glasgow’s city centre brought me to the Necropolis, a huge cemetery situated on a hill next to the gigantic Glasgow Cathedral. It is an important landmark of Glasgow and one that I didn’t know much about, but the slow walk up the hill brought me some unexpected relaxation and some great views from the top.

October 29, 2014 – Glaswegian sunrise

The thing about moving to a new time zone is that for the first week or so, my sleeping schedule changes. For the better, actually, because I am now tired by 11pm and wake up automatically at 7am…which I know won’t last long. This morning I woke up and couldn’t fall back asleep, and looking out the window, I saw the morning glow of the city in a distance (photo taken at a position similar to the one on October 26). First Glaswegian sunrise, and hopefully it won’t be the last one I see 😛

October 27, 2014 – A wet season

I think I came to Glasgow right in the middle of its rainy season – or is every season a rainy season in Glasgow? It hasn’t stopped raining (or at least drizzling) since my arrival and I have a feeling it’s going to be like this year-round. Ah well. The path to the University of Glasgow looks nice though and I can imagine it looking amazing during the summer with the SUN, which I’m already looking forward to!
