I slept quite well in Seattle, actually

23 August, 2010

If you want to travel from Vancouver to San Francisco in a hurry, you could always just fly. But if you have a weekend free, you have some other options. We took a bus to Seattle, in order to catch the Coast Starlight the next day.

Despite a long wait at the US Border*, we had time to grockle over to the Space Needle:

Charlie woz ere

Long exposures

It's all so yellow

Looking down

At the Cheesecake Factory, we ordered one appetiser and one main, and received enough food for my entire family.

Seattle is not a welcoming place. The few people walking around in the evening were either in big groups, or shuffling around muttering and dragging pieces of wood behind them. I wasn’t sorry to leave.

* at which Charlie and the border control staff joked about guns, drugs and holding up one’s nuts. This is not supposed to happen.
