I have returned to my second city. I guess that’s fair to say, since I pretty much spend almost half of my time in Seattle. It always feels good to be back. Seattle is a beautiful city, and maybe even more importantly; is a city situated in a gorgeous mountain area, with the mountains only a short drive away. At the same time, the sea literally surrounds this pleasant west coast city. In other words; enough wilderness and scenery of any kind to please an old nature lover. There is one more aspect of Seattle that I maybe appreciate more than anything else. It’s a open-minded city, people are not confined to preconceived ideas of what is right or wrong. Mostly I should add. The quite progressive inhabitants are willing to listen and to discuss, but almost never with prejudice. Well, of course there are always exceptions to any testimonial. Nevertheless Seattle is wonderful, wondrous and welcoming.
