Glasgow Makes Grocery Shopping Exciting: My Walk to Tesco
Anyone who has studied in Great Britain knows how central Tesco, a popular supermarket chain, is to everyday life. With decent prices and locations at what seems like every corner, it is every university students go-to. I pass two on my walk home from the University of Glasgow and I usually stop in every day to pick up whatever I need for that night’s dinner. However, the smaller Tesco Metros don’t always have the selection I need, so I make the 10 minute trek to the huge Tesco nearby. To get there, I walk along a beautiful tree and apartment-lined canal, which makes every trip special.
Along the canal are many colorful and modern tenements. It isn't uncommon to see people chatting over coffee on their balconies, even in January. In Glasgow, you can find modern architecture situated next to old Victorian buildings, which is part of what makes the city unique. The Murano Street Student Village flats also look out onto the canal.
