USA/WA: Seattle – Exploring the City

Seattle is a wonderful and lively city. But not right now. It was a shocking experience to see the streets almost completely empty, the center shut down, streets desolate, marketplaces and famous waterfront closed, museums and most of the attractions locked, stores boarded up and the only cars around being cops, and the only pedestrians being homeless or clearly intoxicated individuals. This was like being on the I Am Legend movie in a post-apocalyptic megapolis. Still, we managed to find an open oyster bar and took a ride on the famous Seattle monorail and a couple spins on the famous Seattle Great Wheel (next post).
