I’m sure there are many tourists in Seattle right now who have been here longer than we have (twelve days), but that isn’t going to stop me from laughing at them:



I’m sure immediately after this one of them said, “Guys, you should have seen me in Italy. I had this great idea.”

Please enjoy this photographic chronicle of some of the highlights of Pico’s move from Austin to Seattle.

Waiting in the Hilton lobby after checkout but before taking the shuttle to the airport. (We had about two hours to kill.)

First morning in Seattle

This morning I woke up to church bells ringing down the street form the corporate housing where Amazon is putting us up for a while. (You can barely hear them in the background around 0:45.) When I heard them I jumped up to get the video camera, but it took me a while to find it in our three giant suitcases, and by that time they’d mostly subsided. This is the view from our second-floor balcony (which is on “floor 1” in the European style, strangely).

In other news, I recently found out that Seattle does indeed observe daylight savings time. So we will always be two hours behind Austin and three hours behind the east coast.
