Went to the Cubs Twins game on June 25th. I am a huge Cubs fan but unfortunately the cubs lost by some large number that I decided to lose count of. But this was my first MLB game ever and it was pretty cool. We had great seats and it was neat to see. I will be probably taking a break for a couple of days as I am really busy getting ready for OSCON 2006. Other than that keep your eyes up for upcoming pics.
The event was very productive. We had a chance to hang out last night and shoot some pool. It was a good time and we got to meet some more locals. Today we finished up the event and then went out and saw a couple more spots in Seattle. This picture is of the first Starbucks ever.
On the drive back to the hotel we drove across the floating bridge that goes over lake washington. When you look to the right you can see Mt. Ranier. It is kind of hard to see in the pic but look in the background for the white cap. Other than that Seattle is a beautiful place and I hope to get back here a lot.
I arrived in Seattle today and it is an awesome place. We went down to the market down by the bay and saw a stand that the employees were throwing the fish around and yelling out every order. I saw a documentary on it. It is pretty cool to see a bunch of fish in ice.
Here is a pic of the bay.
Good to be back. Toronto was great. We started off exploring the local area and talking with some of the natives. We went to a bar and had some great canadian beer.
We saw Honest Eds where they had a great slogan on the outside of the building that said, “Don’t just stand there, Buy Something”. It is a big discount store that has been in Toronto for a long time.
Then we went and saw Niagara Falls. This was very beautiful but very commercialized. I wore an Italy soccer shirt when I went there and everyone that saw me asked me about the game that day and was I excited. I found out they were playing USA. I watched the game and enjoyed being neutral especially since the game ended up tied. It was a good time but it is good to be back.

I am heading on vacation to Toronto. I have never been there so am excited to see what the city is like. Keep checking my blog to see pics of the great white north.
This blog is dedicated to anybody trapped at home that wishes they could get out and see the world. I will be putting my exploits(if you will) on here along with pictures to give you a chance to relive your youth and live vicariously through me. I am in my lower twenties and work for MindTouch( http://www.mindtouch.com)
