i’m here!

Just a little pic to show I’m here. Taken the first morning in Gasworks Park with the view of downtown Seattle in the background. I’ll et to visit more of downtown on Saturday.

It’s been a good first morning with a tour of Fremont, breakfast and a great chat with Chris. Fremont is a pretty cool place with interesting art installations around the place.

I was particularly intrigued by the statue of Lenin. Found face down in the mud in Czechoslovakia after the collapse of the USSR, by Lewis Carpenter who mortgaged his house to buy and transport it to Seattle! Following the death of Carpenter his family loaned the statue to Fremont district and it’s on display. It’s also for sale if you have  spare $150 000!!
