Hi everyone! Welcome to my second Seattle entry. As usual, I have not given myself enough time to write this... I've just finished uploading the photos so I'll let them do the talking for me. Over the past week I have done the following things.... - been on an exceeding messy pub crawl. - visited the Seattle Art Museum. - bought a dress. - finished reading my book, 'Game of Thrones'. Now on to 'Crime and Punishment'. - Been on a 'Famous Dead Guy' tour in Seattle (Morbid, I know! Sorry about the cemetery photos!) - visited the gardens at Volunteer Park. - had my black vest silk-printed by an artist in the hostel. - eaten numerous crumpets. I think that's about it! Enjoy the photos! Lots of love, Streets. x PS - I'm off on ... read more

Hi everyone! I've been in Seattle for a few days now, and it looks like I spoke too soon... it's been gloriously sunny the entire time, it was just a bit miserable when I arrived at 6am that first morning. Yay! Right now I;m in an internet cafe called 'Cyberdogs' on 9th and Pike. It's pretty trippy, there's loads of posters and mad shit hanging from the walls... oh and there's 3 scary stoned clowns sitting in front of me. One of them is a vegan and is clearly very proud of himself ('Cyberdogs' is a vegetarian cafe). Speaking of which, I finally gave in and bought some boots. I got black Dr Marten's, and oddly enough they are vegan! I would have happily bought the leather ones, but the truth is they were much more ... read more

We left Isla Holbox at dawn yesterday...it was a warm, humid morning...lots of bird song, and mosquitos! We will miss the soft sand, great food, friendly people, warm waves, cold beer, palms, and warm breezes, but not the cigarette smoke (tourists) and watching people roast themselves in the sun.. We took a golf cart taxi to the ferry, which was packed with high school kids heading for the mainland school. Next we took the bus to Cancun, a three hour trip through jungle and villages. The ferry cost 70 pesos for 30 minutes; the bus was 90 pesos for three hours... Once in Cancun, we took another bus to the airport, lunched, bought vanilla, and had an uneventful flight to Dallas. We flew over Holbox, which was very cool...being able to see all of this long, ... read more

August 16, 2010: Biking around Seattle Not a lot to type here…it’s mostly about the photos. I will say that in Seattle, much like my hometown of Chicago, the bike is by far the best and cheapest way to get around. We rode down to Seward Park, on Lake Washington, where I swam with the locals. Then, we rode our bikes home in the dark and a homeless man scared us.... read more

Entry 23: Seattle, Washington: Destination Realized Monday, August 9th - Wednesday, August 18th Scott S.’s Apartment After almost 3 weeks of driving 3000 miles from Chicago, visiting 3 National Parks, a canoe/camping trip in the Boundary Waters, partying in Iowa City with a “T.J.” (pseudonym) Chicago friend, tent-camping in numerous National Forests, and hiking the Pacific Coast Trail, I had finally, at 9:00 p.m., arrived at the excuse for the trip: A reunion with a college friend who I met in 1984, Scott S. He’s lived in Seattle for 22 years now, and it’s been 8 years since I saw him for an hour in Atlanta (both our folks had lived there). We met in the Athens’ University of Georgia dining hall, where I was no doubt enjoying the first few weeks’ of independent feelings an ... read more
