Katt and I joined forces in Seattle for a quick couple days of adventure, food, and sleepiness.
From Seatac we zoom-zoomed straight to the nearest diner for some legit Americana breakfast.
Charged with keeping her jet-lag in check, we drove into the nearby mountains to hike a trail.
What awesomeness, to our surprise there was a beautiful lake!
After a bunch of crossing paths with tons of peeps hiking up and down, we made our way to our couch host in North Seattle. He graciously shared his cute little home and kitty with us.
Katt and I put the kitchen to good use, but I nearly smoked the house out with burnt chicken breasts! Lucky for me, Katt was there to save the day…and dinner.
Oh! We found Casal Garcia green wine at the store, the first time I found any in North America.
It was interesting reintroducing someone to America, someone who has spent much more of their life here than me. It was also strange and cool being two foreigners sitting in Starbucks, meeting locals, and shopping at the store. Sometimes when I’m alone I almost forget that I’m a passerby, a foreigner in this land.
Foreigner every where; at home every where.
Until we meet again. Hopefully less jet-lag next time ;)
