I’m spending the weekend in Seattle, visiting with Matthew and searching for an apartment. I don’t even know how I found housing without Padmapper–it is a life-saver. Seattle will be home base, which means its where my heart and books are, while I’ll be flitting around Boston.
Though my brain is travel-blocked, I’ve found 3 things to love about Seattle:
- I can smell the ocean,
- There are real mountains (where reality is defined by the likelihood they will kill you)
- I saw more Vietnamese, Ethiopian, and Thai places on the light rail ride downtown than I’ve seen in Pittsburgh in 5 years.
