I’m back from a weekend in Seattle, one of my favorite cities.  I stayed at a friend’s place and on Saturday we wandered around downtown where the Space Needle looms overs you the entire time:

Right by the Space Needle is the Science Fiction Museum which I wanted to visit.  Here’s the entrance with the monorail cutting through it.

The museum has Captain Kirk’s chair, a Death Star model used in the first Star Wars movie, and tons of other stuff.   The same place houses the Experience Music Project which features a lot of guitars:

It was typical March weather in Seattle:

I was convinced to take a tour of the library which is architecturally interesting and bold in its use of color:

Wandering around downtown was fun, but the highlights of the weekend were an amazing dinner at Cafe Juanita and the best latte I’ve ever had at Vivace.
