Crossing the Irish Sea to Glasgow: Dinner at the Manor House
I crossed over to Scotland on a large ferry from Belfast in northern Ireland.
From 1845 to 1850, refugees from the "potato famine" were packed into ships called coffin ships and arrived here.
There was always a strong wind blowing in the sea, and the waves were rough, and even such a large ship shook violently. . .
After 3 hours by bus from our destination, Stranraer, we headed further north to Glasgow.
This is where Thomas Lipton's parents ended up and where Thomas was born.
Tonight we will stay at the Manor House, an old mansion built over 500 years ago, on the outskirts of Glasgow.
Here, I met Mr. and Mrs. Matsumoto (tea class) who had been in London for 6 months.
Together, we had a fun late-night dinner in the Scottish midnight sun.
