Around the world in 80 words...

Neither my favourite or least favourite destination but...
Aberdeen is cold, grey, full of granite buildings and on a wet day best described as ‘dreich’. It has decent architecture, two universities, two rivers and is thought of as affluent due to being the oil capital of Europe. It has a thriving harbour (prostitutes optional), and has traditional connections with fishing, farming, quarrying and mills. The locals “spik affa funny” (Doric) and eat lard based morning rolls called Rowies for breakfast. Alcohol consumption is compulsory.

  2. Oooh lard-based morning rolls - just my cup of tea!

  3. they're tasty, tasty, very very tasty ;-)
