Jerry was trying to explain to his mom today where we are travelling to tomorrow. But she simply could not get her tongue around the word "Seattle". The closest she could get was "Sarda".
Whatever you want to call it, I am really excited about spending some time there. Almost everybody who has ever been there just gushes about what a great city this is. And I am a huge fan of great cities.
I shall keep a log of our odyssey to the great northwest, and fill you in on all our adventures. So far we are planning to tour the Museum of Flight soon after we land. Viewing the first Air Force One jet will be rather cool, but what I am really jonesing to do is to go inside the Concorde. I can't imagine ever getting the chance to do that again.
The Underground Tour of Seattle is also a must do, and I think will be perfect for a rainy Monday afternoon as we wait to check into our hotel.
I think we'll leave ourselves plenty of time to explore the Experience Music Project/Science Fiction Museum. It's interactive and shit!
And while the forecast is calling for a pretty good chance of rain for the duration of the week, I don't think that will impact our trip one iota. I don't mind a little moisture while I am sightseeing, and I'm not even that concerned about the possibility of rain washing out the Radiohead concert. Because, according to the latest reports, not only are Radiohead the saviours of modern music, but apparently they can now control the weather as well.
And all manner of excitement is going to ensue when we meet with M and H and their girls. We're meeting up at Pike's Place market where we will throw fish at each other as a token of our mutual esteem. I understand it's a Puget Sound tradition. Wonder what they do for weddings?
And with any luck, I've be able to meet up with Stephanie at the Radiohead concert too. Too much goodness for one little zombie, really.
It's going to be an early morning, so I'd better finish packing, cuddle with the cat a bit, and head for bed.
Sarda, here we come!
