I snapped a couple of photos with my iPhone when we were on our way from Don’s shop to the accident lawyer’s office a couple of weeks ago. I’m sure I looked like a total… um, what’s the word for an uncivilized country person? I never hear the term hick used anymore but it kind of fits. The way I was gawking at everything must have made it obvious that I’m not used to the city. 🙂
Although being in the city is interesting, it’s definitely not my thing. Being surrounded by buildings makes me feel very claustrophobic and there’s so many things going on in every direction: pedestrians walking out into intersections, buses pulling off the curb with no warning and cars and bicycles whizzing by. Part of me wanted to explore and take more photos but the other part wanted to run for the hills. (The uninhabited ones, of course!)
I really would like to explore more of Seattle. But, when I’m trying to decide where to go, it’s always the places away from people that call to me.
