Wow, what a great trip! I can’t believe I packed in so much in so few days. It was my first time in Seattle and I absolutely loved it. On top of some serious tourism (and lots of working), I managed to squeeze in a wonderful evening with old friends (and their beautiful, sweet baby), salsa at the Century Ballroom, and a modern dance class at the Velocity dance center.
Here are a couple of highlights, pictorially. Click on the pictures for larger versions.
Breakfast in Pike Place Market– coffee from the original Starbucks, and an apple cinnamon roll from Piroshky Piroshky
Beautiful produce in Pike Place Market. I love Pike Place. A lot.
After attending a modern dance class at the Velocity dance center, I enjoyed a super cheap and delicious lunch from a little Indian place in Capitol Hill

The Seattle Public Library is a green, high tech building.While I was there, it just so happened that they were about to start a lecture to preview the ballet’s upcoming season!
