There are some cities you visit once and think, "Yeah, I could live here." That's how I felt the moment I stepped off the platform of Queen Street station and ventured into that curious mixture of Gilded Age and postmodern architecture. Their tube system is called the Clockwork Orange (because it's orange and goes round in a circle), which gives you a clue as to the local sense of humour. It's also by far the friendliest city we've been in, in a long time. Every time we were attempting to go someplace (or find a bus to take us someplace) a helpful stranger would appear to untangle us.
Many thanks to the lovely vorvolaka for leading us on a mini-tour about the city before a delicious luncheon at Brodie's restaurant, where I got to experience a right and proper haggis for the first time, as well as for some very excellent conversation. Good times, indeed!
