there are laws in the US prohibiting false advertisement. that's what Seattle should be taken to court for. you arrive excited to visit the "world renown" pike place market or the "amazing" Seattle center with its "soaring" Space Needle. you arrive hoping for a city that celebrates its affection for good coffee or the wonderful waterfalls inside Frink park.
instead, what you get is a starkly different place.
with all the rain, even ducks are sick of the city. Although it only rained the day we drove off to Vancouver, you could still be annoyed by the idea that a city this much prone to rain would only produce residents just equally depressed.did you ask about the "amazing waterfalls"? well, even though it is a city with many days of rain, the waterfalls almost never existed. unless these are the Niagara Falls of the West:
How about the "vibrant" city of Seattle? I am sure these seagulls are having a ball!
And don't get me started on the deserted "حدائق الملك عبد الله" in this shameless place. I don't know if the "Museum of Music" at the World Center resembled what it claimed. to me, it was a big, ugly structure made of sheet metal patched together and a store of Chinese made crap and a few "Guitar for Dummies" books. Also, I regret not taking a photo of the "Raging Waters" park in this horrendous world center. it was a big mess with a puddle of water in the middle of wrecked roller coasters. the space needle was neither space nor needle. عمارة البرج is far more useful than this structure that's lower than the taller, up on the hill buildings in the downtown area. did I say the whole area was deserted?
now lets talk about the fame of coffee Seattle keeps bragging about. you could spin around for a minute and stop, a Starbucks barista would hit you right in your face. maybe people like that type of coffee. but, I am sure they would stay away from the booger infused lattes.
this Starbucks was at the Pike Place Market. I was so sick of hearing and reading Seattle drum up this one of a kind place, where people sell and others buy. groundbreaking! how about the aroma of some fish with those flowers.
there is much more where this came from. a kid slamming buckets next to a "college fund" sign, Jackson Street, the mosquito filled Leschi Park, and the Noah's Bagels ruining the city's public library facade. All this sure to negating the city's claim of being peerless. peer[ful] is more like it.
