Today it’s been just the two of us again and now that the festival is over we’ve started visiting some of the tourist destinations.
We started off by having an excellent lunch at the famous Philharmonic Dining Rooms in Hope Street. It’s supposedly one of the most lavish and ornate pubs in the country and is most noted for its marble urinals which are still original from when the pub was first built.

Of the two I preferred the Catholic Cathedral which is known locally as “Paddy’s Wigwam”.
On the way back we passed the street sculpture known as “A Case History”. It looks like a pile of left luggage and each one has a luggage label with the name of someone famous.
