Seattle City Scenes

When I first heard that my brother was coming to the US, my head said I wanted to be with him, my heart said I wanted to visit my daughter in Macedonia.  Richard however, said we were going to Seattle.  I was so torn.  We went to Seattle, and I have to be honest I fell in love with the city.  There was so…

Seattle: International Chinatown District

When I was in San Francisco I really wanted to go to Chinatown and that did not happen.  So before we even got on the airplane I voiced that the one thing I wanted to do was go to Chinatown.  We walked from our hotel the Chinatown.  It was probably a 20 minute walk from the city center, but I was happy to do…

March 2016: Chihuly Gardens – the outside view

Yesterday I posted my first blog of this travel series, starting off…
