Seattle

Scenes from a boondoggle in Seattle - 2500 miles for a 13 hour stay to assist in a recruitment event attended by only a handful of prospective students. (I have no regrets, beyond the carbon, since I got a peek of a Pacific gateway city I'd not seen before, and had dinner with a fascinating and possibly prophetic religious pioneer - details anon.)Aerial views flying in; reflections in Rem Koolhaas' stunning Seattle Public Library (notice the reflection of the water in the sound, center, and the yellow cab, top); sunset and early morning views from the roof deck of the Inn at the Market, with some local art in the middle; one of the fish swimming underfoot at Seattle Airport.

You know the original Starbucks is at Pike Place Market...Seattle has produced 4 of the companies that have changed our landscape: Starbucks, Costco, Amazon, Microsoft...it's something in the water.
