I belong to Glasgow, dear old Glasgow toon.
Or, in this case Glasgow’s toon because this is Kurt Glasgow’s toon.
Kurt and his family have been running this Glasgow bar for two generations.
And he is always happy to welcome Glaswegians who stop here for the gobsmacking views of Parltuvier in Tobago.
Although he has yet to visit ‘the Dear Green Place’ I think you’ll agree that he has a Dear Green Place of his own.
Our party which is being hosted by the Tobago Tourist Board www.tobago.gov.tt and Virgin Atlantic www.virginatlantic.com stopped off here for lunch this week.
Where I got talking with Ross, a dreadlocked handyman who had stopped by to change an attachment.
There was, of course, no shortage of workmen, who were sitting by the counter having their lunch hour, to call upon.
So it would have been rude not to join in.
As Phil, our driver, and new brother, never tires of reminding us: ‘Better belly bustin’ than waste food.’
And he cleaned his plate.
Being a proper Glaswegian I ate all the meat, the chicken stew, and left the veg!
Wherever you are, Tennent’s, The Sarrie Heid, Sammy Dow’s, The Doublet, or Curlers, then enjoy your Glasgow bar.
And Karl, on behalf of the people of my home town I guarantee you a free pint in any one of them.
For more Caribbean fun here are some previous thoughts… Give us this Day – Sunday School, Tobago, I should cocoa – Christmas in Tobago, It’s Robinson Crusoe’s very own Tobago.
And adventures in the Caribbean… Let’s rumba in Barbados and My kiss with Rihanna.
And now I’m off to participate in that favourite Glasgow sport… goat racing!
MEET YOU ON THE ROAD
