I am just beginning the heavy travel season again with a trip to Seattle for a pre-conference planning meeting. Here is the requisite photo from the hotel room window:
I have never been to the area before and I must say that my midwestern sensibilities are rather struck by the …um… hippies.
I went down Pike Street to the market where I found a darling little book store. At least I thought it was darling until I saw the selection of books. There was an entire section for extreme feminist writing. One for sexuality. The people behind the counter were all face-pierced and the one other customer in the store was dreadlocked. It was not attractive. I looked for a section on local authors but was turned off before I found anything.
I did find the fish-throwing place. Wait, there must be a video somewhere…
There was quite a crowd when I went by. Then I picked up Jimmy John’s and went back to my room to do my homework. I had to turn the heat on.
