Just got back from Seattle

Just spent another week in the beautiful and bike friendly Pacific Northwest. A friend of ours was getting married in Seattle so we spent time in the sunny weather exploring the city and eating great food. Oh yeah and staying in a funky motel off of Aurora that everyone was shocked we had chosen. We had no choice all the hotels were taken by crazy Vagner fans attending the 4 year cycle of the Ring. Besides the occasional domestic despute and the bad reputation of Aurora, the Marco Polo was fine and it was close to the blockbuster of porno, Blue Video...a cultural experience.

Out here they do a similar project to NYC with the ghostcycle Not only if a cyclist is hit by a car but if one is merely injured. They take this shit seriously. The website has a map of all the sites where ghost bikes are displayed.

Out in the art neighborhood of Fremont, a troll lurks under the highway. Notice it is a car he is crushing. He lives under the Aurora bridge and was built in 1990 by sculpters Steve Badanes, Will Martin, Donna Walter and Ross Whitehead.
