I took the flight out of New York yesterday bound for Seattle, THE HOME OF STARBUCKS. When we go into the city I'll take a photograph of the original coffee house.
The weather is perfect, unlike the dreadful weather we had in NY, and my good friends of 35+ years are looking after me so well. I have my own little house in the garden with all mod-cons, hotel style buffet breakfast provided, laundry and chauffer service, tour guide, wonderful food, and good conversation.
They live in the country where it's quiet and extremely beautiful. Last night we went to their local Mexican restaurant for a great meal. After a good nights sleep I'm now good to go.
One of the best things is that I now have access to a REAL computer. I was having severe withdrawals!
I'm here until 24th and then, BA strike and vulcanic dust permitting, back to blighty to catch a plane to my next destination! Which is? Ahh, that would be telling.
