So: my brother Jeremy came for a week's visit, his first trip to Seattle and the West Coast.
Nimiel warmed up to Jeremy right away:
but Jeremy is allergic to cats, so he had a bit of a rough time with sneezing all week:
(These photos are at Piecora's Pizza, one of the better pizza places in Seattle.)
We walked around different parts of Seattle, including Capitol Hill:
the Arboretum/Montlake and Fremont/Wallingford:
Ballard and Magnolia:
and other spots where I didn't get photos, including Pike Place Market, the Seattle Public Library, and the way-cool Museum of Flight.
We also went to see Balkan Beat Box on Saturday night and Goldfrapp on Wednesday night:
We also went to Cape Disappointment State Park, at the mouth of the Columbia River, the southwest corner of Washington state:
And we went to Paradise at Mount Rainier National Park:
It was a very full week and we had a great time. See all the photos in the set "Jeremy visits Seattle 2008".
