After loading the car onto a container ship at Eimskip in Reykjavik bound for England, Paige and I decided to take advantage of our week-long break to tour Scotland. Our first stop: Glasgow. We're suckers for late 19th century UK architecture. During the 19th century, Glasgow was the second largest city in the UK and had a lot of money!

12 January 1999 - When we walked to Ragona Oyster Bar, the streets were almost deserted. Where were all the people that packed the streets earlier in the day? Even in the restaurant, there were less than 10 customers. I was a bit surprised, but we enjoyed great service and food at dinner. The best part - oysters. From now on, I will only serve oysters on the half shell the way I ate them that night in Glasgow - with lemon, red wine vinegar with loads of finely chopped red onions, fresh ground paprika and Tabasco sauce (right out of the bottle). I ate a half-dozen and they were delicious.
