Four years ago today we had recently moved to Switzerland, and did the first of many weekend trips. This one featured six modes of public transit - tram, train, bus, mountain cog rail, cable-car, and boat.

This is funny, I particularly like the mockery of "impactful".

So I got a tattoo. I guess a few people here can read it?

Looks like you are having a fun time and haven't hurt yourself. So, so far so good!

A long walk around London today. I saw St. Paul's Cathedral, the London Museum, Sir John Soame's museum, the National Gallery, and the Transport Museum. After all that culture and walking I was wiped out and came back to the hotel and watched silly videos on YouTube.

At last it is revealed!  I've come to like the new logo, although my first reaction was pretty negative.

Canadian Software Engineer living in Seattle.
Introduction
Born in California, but grew up in Penticton, BC, Canada.  Claire and I were married about 10 years ago, and have lived in the Seattle area since then, except for two years in Zurich, Switzerland. 

I studied Computer Science at the University of Victoria. I moved to the Seattle area in 2000, worked for several companies, and then Google since 2007.   I'm a founding member of Sustainable Kirkland, and a member of Mars Hill Church in Seattle.  
Education
  • University of Victoria, Canada
Location is great, very central in Manhattan. Room was pretty spacious (for New York), clean and comfortable. The included breakfast was ok, with a variety of hot and cold dishes, but not fantastic. No fresh juices, nothing made to order. Breads/bagels are mediocre. But, eggs and fruit, coffee are ok and we will eat the breakfast as long as we stay here. We are up on the 22nd floor and it is quiet enough, with a good view too. The bed and pillows are comfortable.

Not as crowded as the main market, has amazing baked goods, omelets and other breakfast options.

We had a great dinner here. The food was really good, although portions were a bit small. I would suggest getting appetizers as well as a main course if you're looking for a substantial meal. Our server recommended a couple of wines and provided tastes, and we ended up with an excellent choice. Most of the wines are from the Pacific Northwest. Seated by the open kitchen, we enjoyed watching the chefs work. I had been concerned that sitting by the open kitchen would be too noisy for conversation, but it wasn't a problem. We will be back!

Hansen was recommended to us by friends, and we were very satisfied. They moved us quickly and efficiently without damaging anything, and were well organized. I would recommend them.

My wife and I ate here on a Friday night when we were too tired to leave Magnolia and struggle with parking. Our expectations were moderate. We were surprised by how good it was! The curry fritters were delicious, with a great sauce. The Moroccan kebabs were done very nicely, and had some unusual spice, we think sumac? I played it safe with a burger, which was simple, good, and very satisfying. I substituted salad for the fries and was particularly impressed... that salad was great, with a nice dressing, raspberries, crisp shredded veggies. Definitely not a typical boring mass produced "side salad" box, this one had some thought behind it and care taken. We will be back soon, and next time we'll try some seafood specials.

Exceptional service, very friendly! The food was very good, prices are fair. We had lettuce wraps, red curry chicken, Kra Prow with shrimp, a noodle salad and roti canai bread. It was all good, all four of us had different favorites. We will be back to explore the menu further!
