Andrew: "Andrew!"

Morna and Andrew. And where are you from?

Morna: "I'm from Aberdeen in Scotland."

Andrew: "And I'm from Glasgow, also in Scotland."

OK, and, err, what would you say is the most interesting thing about Aberdeen?

Morna: "You can get nice beef there, because we have Aberdeen Angus cows!"

OK, and what about Glasgow?
