Glasgow: Covid Testing, Polar Bears Wearing PFDs, and World Sisters
Monday, November 1, 2021
After a good night's sleep after an expedition of train travel yesterday, today has been an awesome welcome to Glasgow. My day started at Martin and Susan's home (homestay) with a cuppa tea and toast with orange marmalade. Then I navigated how to take a lateral flow covid test and reporting results to the UK National Health Service. Then a walk through Queen's Park to meet find my American climate change colleagues at a community garden and then to a cafe.
The afternoon was spent getting through the numerous checkpoints to enter the United Nations COP26. I lost count of how many times I was asked for my passport along with my covid test results and the very important official UN delegate letter. Once inside the Blue Zone, much exploration ensued. These photos below capture a few moments of the day.
