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.
