The past couple days in Seattle have been a blast. Over the weekend, we spent our days hanging out at Pacific Science Center running workshops, and our evenings hanging out on my aunt’s deck eating copious amounts of food and watching sunsets like this one.
Oh how I love Seattle (and also all my relatives that have been super supportive and amazing hosts to us during our time here).
Today we held our first “coffee chat” with some members of the design community at Seattle Design Center and took some silly pictures while we were there.
We then returned to Pacific Science Center where we chatted about mobile learning programs and watched some magic tricks with Jessica and Sam.
It was fun to share stories and spend a little more time exploring the museum than we’d got a chance to during the weekend.
From there, we headed to the Capitol Hill neighborhood where our truck stood out like a sore thumb amongst all the hipsters. Eugene had a major parallel parking fail in which he attempted to squeeze into a tight spot while Didi and I made fun of him and took pictures. Here’s one of them.
And here’s another.
After all that hard work, he gave up on the spot and found a space that he could just pull into.
Sure it worked, but it was way less entertaining to watch.
After grabbing some awesome pupusas on Broadway, we walked up the hill a few blocks to a pretty cool Starbucks. Here, we had our first coffee shop experience of our Seattle visit, and turned the cafe into our own impromptu press room.
Today (and this weekend) was fun, but we’ve got a whole set of adventures planned for tomorrow not least of which is a coffee chat at Ada’s Technical Books at 7 pm! If you’re in the area, definitely come out and say hi!
