My very first time in Seattle, so first discover the city instead of putting on hiking boots and out into nature. The altitude meters are once again more than unrealistic. It started along the monorail to the Space Needle and from there down to the water. Along this over the Olympic Sculpture Park to the Great Wheel. Then upstairs to Pike Place Market - try great Oyster Crab Chowder. Through 1st Avenue to the "old town" Pioneer Square and Occidental Square. On to Chinatown, here a little dangling is missing on the track. And finally back towards the hotel comfortably via 4th Avenue. A great diverse city with a lot to discover. I haven't finished discovering and I'm looking forward to being here for another two days in four weeks. Nonetheless, Seattle is also one of the US metropolises where the normality of regular society and massive homelessness coexist is heartbreaking.

And in typically gray weather. Maybe the next time you will have better luck and "the mountain" will show up. The homelessness strikes us Europeans immediately, in Portland it struck me as even more blatant, which is supposedly due to the fact that Seattle is driving people out.
Yup, it was quite gray, but at least less wet than advertised.Please explain to me - what is "the mountain"?That's right, homelessness is blatant for us Europeans. Although it's not so intense in all the cities I know over there. I have heard many times that especially liberal cities attract the homeless because the living conditions (if you can call it that) are the least bad there.

The mountain is Mount Rainier, so to speak the Fuji of Seattle. You rarely see it because of the often hazy weather and when it does, it means: the mountain is out! For a moment we were lucky.
