Getting my bearings (picture added)

Well, made it here OK yesterday. Left the office at noon Friday, took BART to SFO, KLM to AMS and again to GLA. AMS, that’s the Amsterdam airport, was a great place to wait a few hours between flights. They have a Vincent van Gogh/Dutch Masters museum, which I did visit, and a meditation room I checked out because I’ve never seen such a thing, but I didn’t go in there. I did see a Muslim praying at his prayer rug and a guy sitting on the floor quietly reading. I might have gone inside, but I’m afraid anything approaching resting would have put me to sleep in minutes. I did keep myself awake all day, until 9 pm (Saturday) Glasgow time when, exhausted, I put myself to bed. But that’s the only jet lag I’ve had. Today I’ve been back to normal and had a good day getting myself oriented to the city’s geography and transit system.

I’m still trying to figure out how to post pictures to the blog. I think I know how in general, but I’m not sure this particular computer will let me do that. For now, BYE, as the cafe is about to close for the night.
