今天是我们西雅图之行的第四天,最后一天,或许也是一辈子都难忘的一天。

Today is the last day of our trip, but the most meaningful day even in our whole lives.

今天的奇遇让我的心情到现在都无法平息,从8点回到酒店到现在的凌晨1点,我都无数次想抓紧时间记录下今日的一切,但总是刚写就删,删了又写,因为有太多的话想说,却已不知该从何说起。。。。。。

It is hard to keep diary today since there are lots of things to tell, but I do not know what I should start with.

事情起因是这样的:在从杰克逊飞往西雅图的旅途中,怡兰姐在飞机上偶遇一位住在西雅图的美国老太太 Ms.Gorgerson,因为邻座的缘由再加上怡兰姐流利的英语表达基础,两人一路聊得非常开心,从中也得知老太太的一位女儿嫁了一位在美国出生的中国人,另外一位女儿曾经到过中国,而自己的外孙女也曾学习过中文,所以老太太也就盛情邀请我们三个中国女孩离开西雅图之前(也就是今天)去她家做客,吃中午饭。所以我们和老太太约好,今天中午12点时她和她丈夫在市中心邮局门口接我们。

The whole fantastic thing goes in this way: Four days ago yilan met an old lady on the flight to Seattle, whose name is Gorgerson, and they both were enjoy talking to each other. And Ms.Gorgerson has three daughters. One of them has been to China once, and one of them married to an ABC (American born Chinese). Besides, her granddaughter also learned Chinese for a year when she was at the community school. Therefore, the old lady is interested in Chinese things, so that she invited us to her home before we leave. And today, as we planned, she will pick us up at the post office in downtown at 12 am.

在此之前,我们决定先去邮局,正好把我们写好的一大堆明信片给寄出去。正巧在邮局中,碰上一位美国男士,他会讲很流利的中文,并声称他妻子是昆 明的(也就是我的家乡)。可是聊了一会见势头不对,我们就赶紧找借口出了邮局,避开男人。结果过了一会,那人跑出来邀请我们今晚去酒吧,当时我们立马开口 说自己还未成年,不能进酒吧。还好,那人并未勉强,最后还是离开了。我们就这么的小小的虚惊一场。

We arrived at the post office one hour earlier to send our post cards. Then we are waiting for the Mrs. Gorgerson in the office, an American guy come to talk with us in Chinese. He is a little bit forward and aggressive and even asks us to a pub night, which make us uncomfortable, and we just get out of the office immediately by making excuse.

Picture
_ 到了中午,老太太和她丈夫准时开车过来接我们,一路上,我们大家聊得很开心,而且他们专门绕道,带我们近距离的欣赏了华盛顿湖的全貌。一路上,我们都被湖泊的唯美所震撼。那湖静谧无息,柔美满地,配上天边的起伏山群,和淡雅天际的装点,让我们的眼,清澈淋漓,让我们的心,沉静无间。更妙之处在于,我们并不是如看海一般近距离站在海边,而是坐在行驶的车子里,透过动的风景,看不动的世界。老太太说,她常常和他丈夫晚上来此散步。能想象吧,一对已结婚五十八年而相守如一的白发苍苍的夫妇,牵手漫步在落叶遍地的小道上,一起看远方起伏的冰山,一起观夜晚灯火装点的湖面,那是何等浪漫与感人的画面啊!老太太说,维系如此长久的婚姻的秘诀是,耐心。一个出乎意料却在情理之中的答案。

Later Ms. Gorgerson comes and we are going to her house with her husband in their car. Mr. Gorgerson is so nice that he takes us along the Washington Lake and we get a chance to see a fabulous lake as ever in Washington State. That lake is clean, wide and beautiful, especially with the decoration of those mountains around and the pure color of sky. The couple usually has a walk along this lake at evening. What a romantic thing it is! She tells us the secret of their more than fifty years’ marriage is patience. A good answer, isn’t?


Picture
_ 游览了华盛顿湖后,我们到了他们家--一栋似乎于坐落于丛林间的别致房子。他们家整个布局是温馨的,古典的,连放盘子的盘垫都是古老的现在已经不存在的新西兰坎特伯雷大学的。没一会,老太太的孙女和女儿都来了。她孙女叫Lysne,毕业于华盛顿大学,语言学专业,是一位带有非常高贵气质的女孩。她女儿叫Carla,是一个乐队的歌手,曾经在1998年跟随老板到过中国。Carla很健谈,很开朗,因为乐队的演奏,去过世界的很多国家和地区。老太太的另外一个女儿的丈夫Richard Chew,就是那位出生在美国的中国人,是一名电影剪辑师。老太太的儿子是一名在阿拉斯加工作的渔夫。而老太太本身也非常健谈,非常的高贵优雅,她的丈夫是医生,一位年迈却依然英俊绅士的男士。

After seeing that beautiful and pleasant scenery, we get to her house – a lovely house located just like in a forest. The decoration there is classic style, even the pads are the class souvenirs of the University of Canterbury which is not sold out anymore. Several minutes later, her daughter, Lysne, and granddaughter, Carla, are coming. Lysne studied at the University of Washington, majored in linguistic and she is an elegant and smart girl. Her daughter, Calar, is a singer and guitar in her band and has been to China in 1998 with her boss. Also because of the band’s shows, she has been to lots of countries. And Ms. Gorgerson’s son-in-law, Richard Chew, is a film editor, born in American and her son is a fisherman in Alaska. The whole family looks fabulous and the old lady herself looks so elegant.


Picture
_ 我们大家坐在一起聊了很多,话题从讲自己的生活到探讨贫富差距,从聊美国到谈及中国,英国,德国,意大利等多个地区,大家谈的都很尽兴。而老太太为我们准备的午餐,那也是绝对的可口。首先是上等的红酒,然后是白皙柔软的米饭,青绿翠甜的斑竹,伴有橄榄的鸡翅,甜点是混有三份不同口味的冰激凌,和香喷浓郁的咖啡,还配有由Carla乐队刚出的新专辑的歌曲。一个下午,也就在美酒,美菜和尽兴的交谈中,流逝了。我们于四点离开了。Carla亲自开车把我们送到了轻轨站。分别时我们都很不舍,所以都互留了联系方式,邮箱,facebook,家庭地址和电话,希望如果能有机会,我们到中国相见,到时,我们一定盛情款待这好心的一家人。

In the whole afternoon, we all focus on talking, from the experience of ourselves to the gap between rich and poor, from taking America to mentioning China, England, German, Italy, etc. the lunch they prepare is also good—a glass of red wine, tasty rice, roasted chicken, three types of ice creams and a cup of coffee, with the new album of Calar’s band. The nice visitation ends up at 4 pm. We really like each other and decide to save some contact information—facebook, emails, phones and addresses. Hope we will be staying together in China someday and we will treat them more than guests.

后来当晚上回到酒店,在网上一查Carla的乐队和Richard Chew,才知道,原来他们可是明星级别的人物,维基百科等权威网站都有他们的信息。我们这才知道,天啊,我们今天,居然是和如此有名气的一家人待了一下午,居然是和一位歌星级别的人物共餐,居然是和曾被英国奥斯卡奖提名为最佳剪辑师的家人聊天!

And it is funny that we are surprised at their family after google it when we come back. The information of Carla and Richard Chew on the Wikipedia gives us a shot. One of them is a kind of famous singer and the other is an outstanding film editor.


Picture

Carla的乐队名称叫 the Walkabouts,是于1984年成立于美国西雅图的摇滚乐队,共出过将近八张专辑。Carla本身是乐队的主唱兼吉他手,并在美国很多地区演出过。www.walkabouts.com是她乐队的官网,里面包含了乐队的历史,功绩和歌曲等各种信息。我们听了她的两首歌,非常的好听。

Carla’s band, the Walkabouts, is an American rock band formed in Seattle in 1984 and she is the core singer and guitar in it. Totally they have eight albums and here is the office website of her band: www.walkabouts.com. The songs sound good.

而老太太的女婿,Richard Chew曾参与过美国大片《星球大战》的剪辑,并是电影《单身贵族》的副导演,剪辑和制片人,总共成功剪辑过将近21部电影,并三次获英国电影与电视艺术学院奖的提名,一次荣获英国电影与电视艺术学院奖的最佳剪辑奖。在权威的维基百科英文版上看到他资料时,才知道他在电影剪辑界,也是一位名人。

Richard Chew, once edited the Star Wars and was an co-director, producer and editor of singles. He owned BAFTA Film Award for Best Film Editing of Conversation, Saturn Award for Outstanding Editing of Star Wars…… and was nominated four times of all kinds film editing.

我们现在也才恍然大悟,老太太家中的信件为什么如此之多而又未拆了。

Now, we finally get to know no wonder there are many letters in the old lady’s house.

不过,冷静下来想一想,其实也没有那么夸张,大家都是平凡人。我们惊叹的只是这样偶遇的经历:三个中国女生,来到一个全新的,只待4天的,美国城市,居然只因为飞机上的偶遇和几个小时的交谈,我们今天下午就坐在了一个西雅图地区名流的家里,与她们共进午餐。???真的让人难以置信。

Actually we are excited not at meeting a famous family, but at meeting such a great experience—we should had a lunch with a native and famous American family with whom we met accidentally on the flight in such a new city that we have never been to and just stay in four days! Unbelievable.


Picture
_ 其实,我们热爱西雅图这个城市,不仅是因为这里优美的自然环境,更是因为温暖的人文气息。第一天刚到西雅图机场,我们打电话时无法和酒店的接车员顺利的进行英语交流,好心的工作人员拿过电话,耐心的和他们讲清楚情况,我们才得以顺利的到了酒店。第二天,在暮色降临,我们还徘徊在轮渡不知道如何去太空塔的路途中,偶遇一位骑单车的男士。他看到我们好像在找路,就主动停下车为我们指路,还给我们一张很好用的地图,还给我们三每人一张带有5美元可以在美国各州星巴克使用的银行卡,以至于那天我们很快的找到路,而且在接下来的几天里,也在星巴克里喝了三四次免费的咖啡。第三天我们坐在去微软公司的公交车上睡着了,到站时乘客和司机主动把我们叫醒,为我们指路,以至于我们顺利的到达了微软公司并按时返回。还有今天。。。

Probably that is why we love this city, not only for the beautiful nature scenery also for the nice people. We met a nice officer first day when we were at airport. At that time we had troubles in communicating with hotel’s pick-up service and he actively talked with them so that we went to the right place on time. We met a nice passenger second day when we were lost at waterfront. He was riding bike and stopped to help us find the right way by giving us maps. Moreover, he gave us a bank card for each and we can use that card in Starbucks up to five dollars. We met a nice driver third day when we were on the bus to the Microsoft Corporation. And today……


回头想想这几天的经历,我们深感,我们是被上帝所保护的孩子,我们是幸运的孩子。除了说幸运,我们还能以各种更好的理由去解释呢。而西雅图这座城市的人文气息,确实令人无比的自在,舒服。干净的街道,温情的市场,热心的行人。。。难怪这里的轻轨票都靠自觉性而没有强制性的检票机,难怪这里的公共汽车可以买一次票就无数次的换乘,难怪这里被称为全美最适宜居住的城市!

We are lucky girls, aren’t we? We are the precious kids of God, aren’t we? We are well protected by God, aren’t we? Thank God so much. Love Seattle, love Pike Market, love everything we met here.


Picture
_ 现在已经凌晨早晨六点了,雨涵她们已经坐上了飞往旧金山的飞机,我再过一个小时也即将踏上下一站之旅。好不舍,好留念,好不愿意和西雅图说晚安,而想一直和它说早安!

Now, it is almost 6 am and one hour later, we are going to leave here. Not want to say “Good night, Seattle” anymore, instead, pursue to say “Good morning, Seattle!” all the time.

西雅图不眠夜,今日再现,不因为电影中的爱情,而因为现实生活中,城市的温情!

Sleepless in Seattle, is happening not because of romantic love in the movie, but because of love in the reality life in Seattle.

早安,西雅图!
Good morning, Seattle!

这是我们旅行的第三天,具有挑战性的一天。

It is the third day of our trip, the tough one actually.

今天整天的天气都伴有蒙蒙的细雨,我们要么就一直行走在湿漉漉的人行道中,要么就是坐在轻轨,巴士等交通工具的车窗边等待目的地。大概因为天气的缘故,我们的情绪也莫名的变得有些低落,惆怅。

Drizzles accompany us all day and our trip is mainly on the bus or walking on the wet streets, which probably makes us a little bit down today.


Picture
_  早上我们经过了无数次的问路,查路线图,才找到去大学区的交通路线。当坐上轻轨时,我突然想把坐在轻轨上看到的风景照下来,虽然相片清晰度不高,但那确实是西雅图大部分地区的城市全貌。而且,当窗外风景骤然倒逝于眼边,也总能品味出人生得失之感。

We plan to start the trip by going to the University District, but we do have a hard time looking for the right routine of that. Then after sitting on the light rail, a wonderful idea hits me that it might be interesting to take pictures of city when I am on the moving rail. The quality of photos is not that so good though, the picture diary is going to be a best proof of city view. Besides seeing something out of window kind of reminds me of something related to life. Just as the moving scenery outside of window, we cannot decide what presents us and catch up something that is not supposed to be ours, but we still should appreciate everything we have already had, because at least that everything belongs to us.


Picture
_ 后来我们依行程到了西雅图的大学区,主要是看华盛顿大学。它是一所世界排名22的优秀大学,而且在全美公立大学中,综合实力排名第四,所以值得一看。但当我们坐公交,眼看着行人由外国人多,变为中国人多的时候,不用听站牌预报,都知道我们的目的地要到了。中国人的实力就是如此之强大,越到繁华,越到有技术含量的地区,中国人出现频率就越高,麻省如此,哈佛亦如此,而依然优秀的华盛顿大学也不例外。我们又开始听见熟悉的中文,看到亲切的“熟人”了。不过因为天气缘故,也因为已有麻省和哈佛的旅游经历,我们在华盛顿大学所待时间并不久。因为,我们今天的主要目的地--微软总部,正在像我们招手。

Then we arrive at the University District and we just want to see the University of Washington. Actually it is funny that when we are aware of many Chinese passengers passing by, we just know that it is time to get off the bus because the destination is not so far. Thinking in that way is rooted from the experience that visiting to MIT and HV. In that trip, the nearer we get to close to the school, the more Chinese people on the streets. So we get used to it and also apply it this time, successfully, it works out. But we just hang about for a while at W, then leave for the Microsoft Corporation.


Picture
_  微软总部坐落在雷德蒙德地区,是临近西雅图的一个地区,而后来到了之后,我们才知道,原来那就相当于微软研究基地一般,基本被微软的各种楼所占领了。我们首先是到一个微软中转站,在那里,有免费的专门由微软公司提供的免费咖啡,茶和各式饮品,然后告诉那的服务人员要去微软那栋楼,那么就会有各种型号大小的微软巴士或的士来接我们到目的地。对于我们这样的参观者,在偌大的一个微软地区,有且只有一座楼可以去,那就是游览中心。所以在专车的接待下我们顺利到了这座有且只有一楼对参观者开放的游览中心。里面有且只有两处地方对参观者开放,一处是专门卖微软产品的,一处是微软体验馆(今天正好关门),所以我们就一直在微软产品店逛了很久。但是那里的商品千姿百态,而且都以微软开发出来的软件,游戏,浏览器命名,如binggeek等。所有的东西都很别致,而且是专属品,不过价格比较昂贵,所以最后还是没有走到收银台的位置上。

The Microsoft Corporation is located on the Redmond, a neighborhood of Seattle. And after being there, we are surprised that the Microsoft Corporation’s buildings and connector shuttles spread the whole area. The bus drops us off at the Transit Center in which free coffee, tea and foundation drinks are served by the corporation. Later the staff will check the customers’ requests, such as which building are we going to, then the shuttle or taxi will come and pick us up to there. But it is a pity that only the first floor of Microsoft Visitor Center be open to the public, for anywhere else, it is for employees only. But everything is going fine in the Visitor Center Store. Lots of cute things are there.


Picture
_ 后来,又在专车的接送下,我们返回到了中转站,准备打道回府,那会也是下午四点,城市已被黑夜笼罩了。相机,也在那时,没电了,所以晚上的生活也就无法用图片形象说明了。

About four, we come back and the city is already in a dark. Unluckily, the camera is also out of power then, so there won’t be pictures about our nights.

回到了市中心后,我们在西雅图的繁华区吃了晚餐,逛了很多商店,买了很多纪念品,最值得一提的是一家专售日品的日本店。东西好不说,价钱超级便宜,所以在那里我们的购物欲得到了充分的满足。后来又在梅西百货逛了许久,于10店多到达了旅店。

After being back to downtown, we have a dinner at Westlake Center then go shopping at Marcy’s and a tiny but wonderful Japanese store. It is 10 in the hotel.

今天的旅程, 并不是很顺利,但是,也是因为途中不顺,才更感人情的可贵。而我也终于明白,只有完全置身于西雅图时,才能体味其中那份浪漫,轻快和温柔之感,临海而行,伴有微风飒飒,才显西雅图的梦境阑珊,也才足以让心,就此沉浮。

The trip today doesn’t work out so well as yesterday, but it is a good experience to meet something new. For me, I get to know the excitement and satisfaction still comes from Seattle itself—romantic, gentle and light. Sleepless happens just in Seattle.

这是一个特别的假期,我会每天更新博客以记录我们生活的点点滴滴。
This is a special break for us and I am going to update the blog everyday to diary our special trip.

Dec. 14 2011

这是我们到西雅图的第二天,也是我们正式开始旅行的日子。
It is the second day in Seattle, which is also the beginning of our trip.

早上我们大概九点坐上了西雅图的名叫Link的轻轨,开始了我们西雅图downtown之旅。这里的轻轨买票完全靠自己的自觉性,因为轻轨站里是没有专门的刷票机去检票的,行人只要直接上轻轨就好。当然,这里的人的素质非常高,每个人都自觉地买票,如果没有遇到检查就算,但是如果遇到乘务员抽查票,查到没有买,每人是要罚128美元的。当然我们很自觉的买了轻轨票。轻轨上人很少,很干净,很舒适,整个城市的节奏也并不是很快。自己就静静的坐在窗边,看着轻轨由南向北穿越整个城市,沿路都是绿树,还有独立的house,绿色草坪,伴有远方朦胧的天际,整个城市洋溢着异样幸福的气息。从一开始,我们三个就无可救药的爱上了这个城市。


We start our trip by taking the light rail—Link to downtown direction. It is funny that there is no machine to check rail tickets in the hall, instead, buying tickets or not depends on passengers themselves. But of course, it happens that the staff on the rail will check tickets sometimes, and for those who haven’t bought tickets, it will charge them for 128 dollars as a punishment. So definitely we buy our tickets in the beginning. On the rail, there are lots of vacant seats and very clean isles with cozy heat temperature. As for me, I am totally into the sightseeing outside window, which is full of lines of trees, dotted houses and beautiful grasses. Besides, the decoration of vague sky makes city more comfortable. And we just cannot help ourselves loving the city from the first morning.




Picture
_  我们在比较出名的Chinatown-International District站下车了。在见过了NY的中国城后,我总觉得中国城应该用繁华,人多,壮观等词去形容,但是西雅图的中国城,却是空空的,只有很少的店铺,所以我们的第一站就匆匆而过了。我们的第二站是派克市场,因为那里是全美第一家星巴克咖啡的故乡。不过沿途,我们也就一路欣赏了这个城市。这个城市的地势有很明显的凹凸起伏,以至于每走过一条大道,总觉得要么是在爬山,要么就是下山的感觉。走在街道中,四周有高楼的环绕,但是人不多,而且配上灰蒙蒙的天,即使那已是中午,也依然觉得城市依然在睡梦中一样,朦胧,幽静。所以,我们也就索性的自由自在的穿梭在这样带有些许繁华又夹杂部分幽静的街头,走过将近七条大街,前进了将近十多个街区。整个行程并不累,虽然阵阵的寒风有些刺骨的寒冷,但是心里却异常的开心,幸福。我们三个女生,就这么肩并肩的快乐的前进,并且一路上都情不自禁的说“我真的好喜欢这个城市啊”。西雅图,就是这样,用最简单,质朴,纯正的风景,让人没有理由却又无可救药的热爱,沉醉。

We get off the rail at Chinatown-International District, planning to see those gorgeous and fantastic Chinatown which we have been in NY. But the Chinatown here is totally different from what we thought, because it is almost nobody on the street and there aren’t many shops open. Since it is the way it is, we decide to go to the Pike Market in which the first Starbucks locates. And we also have a good view of whole city when we are on the way. The streets in Seattle are actually kind of curved, and going there just like climbing some small hills, from the bottom to the top then to the bottom. Moreover, there are many tall buildings all the way. However, probably because of hazy sky, it makes us feel we are still in the morning even it is already afternoon though. Then with high mood and beautiful sceneries, we have crossed about seven avenues and more than ten streets. But it is not tired experience, instead, we enjoy the every moments walking in this city.




Picture
_ 后来我们到了派克市场,这是一个非常有名的农贸市场,里面什么都有,而且东西比较平价。这里的海鲜尤为出名,所以一进去就是一家很大,货物很鲜美的海鲜店。我们的中午饭就是在一家海鲜店吃的,这顿绝对是到了美国以后的第一顿大餐。我们要了阿拉斯加大蟹腿,华盛顿家酿纯正良酒,两碗香喷喷的海鲜汤,还有一碗色香味俱全的海鲜大杂烩,再配上海边天海一色的风景,窗边清新的柠檬水,还有身边的好朋友。。。。。。我们三个又无可救药的沉醉了。感谢主,感谢主让我们能拥有如此丰富的生命。

Later we arrive at the Pike Market which is a well-known public market with various goods. The seafood is popular here and as a result of that we have a luxury lunch at Authentic .  The great Alaska Crab, a cup of wine, a bowl of shrimp soup and seafood bowl are the great dishes as ever for our lunch. The time we eat, the time we appreciate the sea view outside window and talk with good friends. We have to say, thank God for giving us so precious life.




Picture

后来我们在派克市场,逛了很久,进了很多小店,通过各种小物品,看到了美国精神和物质生活的变化,从久远年代的景点偶像到如今热播美剧的偶像,一幕幕在派克市场里呈现出了最好的博物馆状态。当然我们还看到elephant garlic,当地土生土长的大梨,还有巧克力味的意大利面,满足了极大的好奇心。

Then we shop at the Market which presents some interesting things, such as  elephant garlic and chocolate pasta.



Picture
_最后,我们去了全美第一家星巴克,那间房子并不大,不像其他星巴克,那连坐的位子都没有。但是这就是第一家,纯粹的第一家,没有那么多的奢华,有的就是简单的咖啡。所以我们还是很兴奋的端着咖啡在屋外照了很多照片。
 
After a while, we go to the first Starbucks. It is small and even hasn’t seats in it, but it is the first looks like—simple but useful. It is such a miracle that the Starbucks spreads America everywhere at present just from such a small store.



Picture
然后,我们在寒风中,去到了waterfront (码头)。看到了远方的冰山,看到了西雅图的地标太空塔,看到了无数停靠的船舶,看到了正在行进的渡轮。有水的地方,总是能悄无声息的将周围的一切灌溉出灵动的美感。喜欢这样的海,喜欢这样的海景,喜欢在如此静谧海面装点下的西雅图。

Even it is cold walking outside, we still deiced to go to the waterfront. At there, we see the far distant iced mountain, the tall Space Needle and surrounding ships. Love the sea view, love the silence that comes from the sea, and love the city with the beautiful silence.



Picture
_


最后,我们从downtown走到了Seattle Center,到了太空塔下。但是,在有了站在帝国大厦最高处俯瞰纽约全景的经历后,我们对这样高大的建筑看全景似乎失去了应有的兴奋度,所以在塔下逗留了一会,我们决定就此结束今日的行程。那时,虽然才七点,但整座城市在五点时,已进入黑夜笼罩的状态。但,灯光下的西雅图,更显迷人。

In the end, we go to the Seattle Center, the place that holds Space Needle. But as a matter of fact, after we having viewed the 360-degree view of NY on the Empire Building, our curiosity have already went up to a higher level, so that we plan to be back to the hotel before going up. It is dark at that time but the city under lights is more charming.




Picture
_
今天的旅程,没有去纽约那样的繁忙劳累,没有去华盛顿那样惊醒动魄,也没有去波士顿那样的悠哉徜徉。今日的行程,有了那份我们曾去奥尔良的感觉--稍许的忙碌,适当的漫步,和发自肺腑的喜爱度。或许,有水的城市,给予了我们这份特殊的别致吧。
 
The trip today is neither tired as NY Trip, nor adventurous as DC Trip. Actually the comfortable feeling today reminds us of New Orleans Trip, which is a trip in deed—walking, appreciating, photographing, enjoying and feeling—rather than a task. Maybe the connection of water makes them similar.

现在我们三人在酒店里,回味着今天这一切,脸上依然带有幸福的笑容。因为,我们知道,我们由衷的,喜欢上了,西雅图,无论白天,还是黑夜。

Now we are in the hotel and still sincerely happy about trip today. We all know, we just love Seattle without any reasonable reasons. Good night--Seattle.
