Pacific Northwest

Well, I've finished all my lectures here in Seattle. This afternoon I checked out Pike Place Market, which is basically just a market, but it does have a pretty cool vibe: lots of street musicians, tons of random hippies etc. It was also pretty awesome to check out Puget Sound and to see Mount Rainier looming imposingly in the distance. I just checked out the whirlpool and steam room here at the Grand Hyatt. I'd never partaken of a steam room before, but it's pretty much what it sounds like: hot room, pumped full of steam. Clears out the sinuses well. I'm gonna meet mharder for dinner in a couple of hours, and then I have a few hours tomorrow morning to hang out before flying back to the UK. All told, not a bad city.
