I had a great time in Seattle; I got to catch up with Oliver (and also meet Oliver's GF, Linda, who apparently has friends who internet-know me!), Borst, and Stephanie. The weather was what I expected: rainy. It was also especially cold and windy while I was there, but fortunately I came prepared with a winter jacket and a scarf!

I'm always amazed at how different cities feel - Seattle definitely had a more cultured/hipster feel to it than San Diego does. (Washington D.C. has this academic feel when I walk around downtown, while the MIT/Harvard part of Boston has this nerdy feel.)

While there, I learned to appreciate a good latte - I guess I never liked lattes here cause they all taste horrid. If I lived in Seattle, I'd probably be a coffee fiend (the weather seems to have a lot to do with it).

Trying to be cool, I decided to only take a film point-and-shoot camera on this trip - so no digital pictures! I'll need to send in the film (Tri-X) to get developed, then I need to scan them. Soooo, you'll only probably see those pictures a few weeks from now... unless somebody else uploads some pictures!

Had a great time seeing you Seattle folks ... and thanks to Borst for letting me couch-surf the weekend!
