I'm leaving for Seattle in, what, three weeks now? I was looking at my friend Derek's lovely photo-blog this morning (when I should have been writing about milk, Goddammit), and getting really nostalgic. Since most people in Europe don't really know anything about Seattle, here's some view-porn, courtesy of The D.
And here's some of mine, from the summer before I left.
Footnote: I'm never drinking on Independence Day again.
Ok, back to Derek's pics. Below is my college town, Bellingham, which British people always mispronounce magnificently. It sorta looks like a favela here, but that's not really Derek's fault. It was probably designed to depress foreign diplomats or something.
This isn't exactly the same as my '5 minutes' experiment, but all the following things are within probably an hour's drive of Seattle. We like our nature over there.
And, finally, this January I'm traveling to Panama with this man. Would you trust him around coca leaves?
