MJ's back still not good but we decided to drive to the Rose Garden which is in the same park as the zoo - it took 60 mins yesterday by MAX but only 15 mins in the car. The roses were beautiful but at the end of the day you can only spend so long looking at roses. We drove back into town and parked up but could only buy 90mins on the street - so we had a Starbucks in Pioneer Square and then went back to the hotel.

We are kinda sick of American TV now - especially that awful Nancy Grace on CNN - she does these shows where she gets endlessly indignant about news items - just awful.

Evening meal was a Chinese nearby - it had a restaurant/booth thing going on and no atmosphere - soup and appetizer were great plus the Chinese beer was a nice change after the last 3 nights "heavy beers" and it came, as ever, to $40.

A combination of MJ's back and too long in the hotel bedroom are starting to get to us - we need to get back to being tourists and get back on the road.

We heard the Jane is now a granny - so congrats to her and best wishes to Amelie.
