Before heading to Lake Louise, I decided to take the bus down to Seattle for a quick city break. Seattle was always a city I wanted to visit and we did pass it on our US road trip but we didn't have time to stop off.
Things didn't start great, I got left behind by my bus at the US boarder. Luckily another bus driver saw me chasing after my bus and said I could hitch a ride with him. We arrived in Seattle before my original bus and after a very angry email to Bolt Bus I had my ticket refunded.
I did an underground tour of Seattle. The whole city has been elevated above ground level. Apparently move earth was moved to construct Seattle than the Panama Canal.
Many streets have a sub street below them
Trying out HDR, the weather was shite so I am trying to over-compensate
Fallen Firefighters Memorial.
This memorial was inspired by the deaths of four Seattle firefighters who died January 5, 1995 fighting a fire in the Mary Pang warehouse in Seattle's International District - Wikipedia

The weather was very wet.

The famous Space Needle
Is this some pun? Or just really bad use of the hyphen? Either way I am not sure if I want this guy to anal-yzed anything.
Out on a bar crawl.
Skee ball, a popular past time in the US
Drunken karaoke, someone uploaded a video of us singing, it was atrocious.
Probably not the best time to hire bikes.
An interesting post I saw on a lamp column.
I found this on some lamp post. Apparently the US is going to be invaded by Asian becuase everyone is drunk and high and the Pho Tai sleeper cells will be activated.
Visiting the Microsoft centre because Valve wouldn't reply to any of my emails.

Star Trek exhibit
If you are a trekky or not, you have to respect Star Trek's creator.
Still waiting for mine.
Still captivating audiences
The Space Needle is commonly photographed, so this is my rather pathetic attempt of photographing a common landmark from a "new angle"
Same as before
It absolutely pissed it down.
Cool street lighting.
