I'm hardly an avid fan of what's going on in these Commonwealth Games in Glasgow. I have no intention of following the TV presentation of them except that I do want to see what the inside of the Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome looks like, but only because of my interest in cycling, not an interest in the Commonwealth Games. I wonder if Mrs. Jaconneli is watching?

I am not interested either, as for Mrs. Jaconelli, she is lucky she lives here, the Chinese and the poor people of Brazil,, were not given the same options.

In Town again today.

George Square & Merchant City.

Lovely with all the Market Stalls and Street Table from Bars & Cafes.

Two slight problems.

Argyle St. Station, passengers being stopped from entering and told to go round the back entrance.

I was advised by Barman in Steps Bar that People travelling East front entrance , travelling West rear entrance .

Both end up on same platform. ?

On Tuesday my SIL got train from Argyle Street to Anniesland. Everyone told to get off Partick . No explanation, many angry passengers.

Leaving the Square , walking along Ingram Street to visit Markets. Tried to turn right into Brunswick Street , small barrier, young Italian girl told me I was not allowed, I asked why, she did not know ,said I had to " Go around." Not her fault.

Other people trying to leave Brunswick street onto Ingram Street were stopped by a young man and told they could not leave.

They ignored and exited.

We walked to Candleriggs, and after Market , walked up Brunswick street for a look. Young girl still there, still stopping people.. ??

Many Police vans and many police on patrol.

I had the privilege of being one of the performers at the opening ceremony. Back stage the atmosphere was amazing.

However getting a train home at 1.05 am from Dalmarnock which was full, to the west of Glasgow was amazing. Well done Scotrail it can be done. The trains are running till well after 1.30am. And the bus shuttle to Glassford Street on rehearsal nights was great.

Gaun yersel' Scotland .I know you will do us all proud ,no matter what they make ye' wear thumbup.gif

Some photos from Buchanan Street and George Square on the day of the opening ceremony. A quite fantastic atmosphere in both locations, with huge amounts of people enjoying the sun and the carnival atmosphere.

Photos 1-10.

I am so enjoying these games, as I knew I would. What great photos - it does heart good to see everyone turning out to enjoy the spectacle. I would love to be there and hear the bagpipes. Great results from Scotland too on the medal table - I love it all!
