Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks. Coffee. Microsoft. Then I was introduced to the Rain. Being dryer than London is a low bar. There were breaks in the clouds for beautiful runs if I got my timing right. New home of a friend from Westville. First taste of clam chowder. First time seeing Amazon's Alexa in action. More coffee. Hills so steep they feel like steps. Homeless people so hammered they wouldn't make it up steps. Friendly bus drivers. East Cherry Street. Lake Washington Boulevard. The Gas Works at Lake Union Park. Public toilet with no doors. An innovative city inventing itself.
