I'm Here

We made it to Scotland without any delays! We did learn a few things on the way though.

Here's what I learned today:
Icelandair has NO free food or snacks on their flights :-(

The Iceland airport has almost no food in their terminal and the food they have is outrageously priced and quite nasty

Even though your plane is only stopping in Manchester and then continuing on to Glasgow, you must still de-plane and go through security before getting back on the same plane and continuing your flight

University of Strathclyde does NOT have wi-fi, but a nice little restaurant a block away does

It's a long walk from the Buchannen (sp?) Street station to the U of Strathclyde when you are pulling and carrying all your luggage

They have Aldi's in Glasgow! Very good news indeed

You should NOT pack powdered chai tea mix in your suitcase in a Tupperware container whose lid may come off during travel and get chai tea powder over all your clothes

Sixty-two degrees is quite warm when you are in Glasgow and walking everywhere, particularly up four flights of stairs with all your luggage

I can park a car for free in a lot right next to campus

Most places in Glasgow take Visa

There you have it. A few of the things I've learned since leaving Minnesota 18 hours ago. I'm sure tomorrow will bring many more lessons :-)
