My trip to Downtown Seattle
I went to Downtown Seattle today (3rd July). This is a Windows Live Local collection of my trip there. Click on the link below for the full tour. In Windows Live Local, for each point, select the Bird’s Eye View for a great view of that place.

Pike Place Market
This is US’s oldest continuously operating market and it is more than 90 years old. They sell stuff the old way here – makes you feel you are in a local market back in India!
Seattle waterfront. Lots of activity here – Boats, Yatches, Paragliding… good stuff!
I came here next. There was a big queue to get in, so didn’t go in.
I bought my lunch somewhere near here at a Vietnamese eatery – Vietnamese Veg Sandwich with a free soft drink!
Seattle Art Museum
Not interested in Art. Didn’t go in there.
Pioneer Square – Smith Tower
This is the city’s oldest neighborhood that flourished in the late 1800s. The area was completely destroyed in a fire in 1889.
The sports stadium – Americal Football, Soccer. Has a roof that can be closed – said to be the world’s biggest of the kind!
Old style Railway Station
Hing Hay park…
Not much of a park, this, but it does have a colourful dragon mural.
Kobe Terrace Park
Went in here and a couple of black guys"
