Sleepy in Seattle

By amandaperran in : Fun // Aug 1 2006

Well technically I am staying in Redmond but I liked that title so we shall roll with it.  So after a LONG day of travel (9+ hours of flying gah), I have officially arrived here on the West Coast.  I am super excited to be here since I have never been out this way before and have been wanting to for quite a while.  Between the opportunity to finally visit the Microsoft campus and the opportunity to drink an espresso directly from the source of my favorite roaster…I’m going to have a good week. 

This city is sooo beautiful.  I got a shuttle from the airport with Shuttle Express (nice service) and got to see a bit of the city.  Plus the view when we were coming in for a landing was quite impressive.  I am looking forward to seeing some more of it tomorrow when I don’t feel so sleepy.  

It’s 7:30PM here now but midnight in Amandaland so I will be heading to bed soon.  The beauty of the 4.5 hour timezone difference is that I can 5am in the morning and it will feel like I have slept in.

    Bring back a “una bella tazza di caffe”, and I may drop by your house.

    Have a good trip and bring me back a picture.

    Share a pitcher of the wonderful “amber ale” when you get a chance.

    “Nil carborundum illegitimi” and have fun!

    Girl! You should have told me you had never been to Seattle. I could totally take you out and show you around! Let me know if you still have another night and we can go out. :)

    Sheash Trisha – it’s about time you offered! :P

    It was awesome to see you again and next time I come out here you will definitely have to show me all the cool night spots. I will even make a point of staying up past 8PM – this west coast timezone thing is killng me here.
