Seattle, The First Day [Mar. 16th, 2012|10:57 am]

So I love Seattle. It's my new favorite American city, in spite of the nasty weather we had my second day there. (Snow? Sleet? Winter mix?) The first day I didn't reach the hotel until late afternoon, and slfcllednowhere came straight over to take me out and show me her fun city. The laughing didn't stop for forty-eight hours. We're two girls who speak in TMBG lyrics, and we were loose on the town.

It's Quinn! First meeting, and I've only known her for about eight years.

Our first stop was this attractive structure, the Seattle Library.

This is a vegetarian hot dog place, and it looks like it does well.

Seattle is full of voices.

For antivert

This chile relleno was good, but the yam & habanero tacos and guacamole were outta sight.

Used book store, where I finally picked up a copy of Rat Girl.

Oops, this came out blurry. Quinn is actually a curator, and her apartment is a museum which is also a library.

I like Quinn's portrait of her accordian, Sid.

I haven't been to Boston, but I have relatives there. I'd definitely like to go.

Thank you! As you know, there are many more to come. That was the happiest layover I've had in a while ~ I'm still feeling the afterglow. <3

I was completely impressed. I always wanted to go because Seattle is a sister city of Kobe, which is my favorite city in the world. Kobe is warmer (if not drier), but Seattle is just lovely.

I hope you come back when I return -there are quite a few other gems but you definitely got some great ones! I've only known you for about 5, 8 yrs as well. When were you in Kobe? Yesterday? Seattle has wonky weather but we stick with it so long as we have coffee. I mean GOOD coffee ;)

I think I've known you for about ten years! And I'll be back, now that Emirates flies there. =D
