Well actually my legs are tired...because I walked all day...and don't fly.
This is it! My pen-pal from Germany has finally arrived with her husband. They flew into Sea-Tac last night, we stayed in a hotel, and spent all day sight-seeing in Seattle. This has been amazing, fun, wonderful, and splendiforous! Okay...I know that's not a word.
Today we zoomed to the top of the Space Needle, walked all around the E.M.P., chillaxed at Ivar's, swam with the fishes at the Aquarium (well we walked beside them on the other side of the glass), and bought some amazing peaches at Pike Place. Tomorrow we see the Science Center, the Museum of Flight, and sail away on a Harbor Tour, and at some point will eat at the Spaghetti Factory. All the while we will be practicing our German and continue to be floored at how well our friends speak English.
Did they bring any chocolate, you might ask? Why, yes! Yes indeed they did! Have I been secretly snitching it every chance I get? Um...let me lick my fingers before answering that.
If you ever have the opportunity to meet your pen-pal of 20, 30, 40 or even 50 years (I heard this on NPR today. 50 years!) I highly recommend it. What an adventure!
