Was a bit nippy in Seattle, considering the rest of the states are having extreme heatwaves. But that's not the reason for the title. Lot's of hipsters with "interesting" beards, and still holding on to the grunge look for dear life. Could be a major problem if the decide to hold a G20 conference here. How will anyone be able to tell the protesters from the passers by?

Having said that, the people are extremely friendly and very polite. Went to a bar called Cuffs. Had the look of a old style bikers hang out, but with disco music and mirror balls. LOVED IT! A nice bartender called Arron was asking me about my road trip, whilst keeping me topped up with way too many Scotch & diets (is there such a thing?) He also refused to take any cash from me. Told me I need to save my money for any not so friendly places I may visit!! LOL.

The next day, I decided to take a trip on the monorail to the Space Needle. It was built for the world's fair in 1962. Bit bumpy, and gave me a bit of a shock when it cornered and leaned sharply to the side, giving me a view of the street 50ft below!

Huge lines at the Space Needle, but braved it anyway. I didn't bring a jacket with me, and was just wearing cargo's and a t shirt. Not a big problem on the ground, but FREEZING on top of the tower. Views were spectacular! Unfortunately, I had left my SD card back at the hotel, so pics are on the camera's memory and I don't have the lead to connect to the mac.

As I would be driving for 6 hours the next day, I thought I would be sensible, and have a short afternoon drink at Cuffs... hahahahahaha.

Had a great afternoon/evening listening to CLASSIC disco tunes. DJ was amazing!

I liked Seattle a lot. I wouldn't necessarily go back there, but pleased I went. X
