In Glasgow, with some time to kill before a conference call, I go to Jaconelli’s for a coffee. A short order cafe and traditional sweet shop combo, with low ceilings and panelled wood walls. 100% Scottish Italian.
The calls behind me, I collect Angus and meet Megan at Central. Tickets collected, I download Angus’ railcard and we’re off. Only challenge is the 11 carriage Pendolino has been replaced by a 5 carriage Voyager, so all seat reservations are lost.
I take us round the back of Euston to Drummond Street and Diwana’s. It’s mobbed, but they find us a table. Dosas and thalis are ordered. Lassis are drunk. ‘tis good.
