Glasgow

...or at least a little part of it with some modern architecture.

What's the big dome that looks like a terrestrial isopod?

The oval thing in the third picture? That's an IMAX theatre which is linked to the Science Centre next door (the bigger glass orange segment building in front of it).

The first picture has the Crowne Plaza hotel (where I stayed) on the left and the Armadillo - I mean the Exhibition and Conference Centre on the right. The middle pic shows the rotating Science Tower, which has had problems and been closed for nearly 10 years now.

Turns out I was referring to "the Armadillo", but thanks for that quick tour of Glasgow's highlights. Hope you're having fun up there!

Not sure 'fun' is the right word. :-\

Thankfully I have weekends back here at home.
