First weekend in Seattle May 16, 2012

The first weekend has passed. My flight to Seattle on Saturday was shared with 4 other Georgia Tech students: my 2 roommates, a fellow 2011 CoC mentor, and an old friend I was not aware was interning at Microsoft as well. After the 5-hour flight we tried to find a car big enough for 11 bags and 4 people (the fellow mentor left with someone else).

The first challenge of the summer: car tetris!

We eventually got to our apartment complex, which is lovely and beautiful and has bunnies (what more could you want??). Our apartment was just as lovely and beautiful despite not having bunnies, but I’m actually okay with that last part.

Our dining room all set up

Our living room – we have a fireplace!

Since it was still early evening we decided to get some groceries with Paul and his roommate Jeff G. before calling it a night.

Achievement unlocked: successfully bought groceries

We had the car until Tuesday, so on Sunday we explored around the downtown Seattle area for a bit.

First time seeing the Space Needle in daylight 🙂

Public Market Center – reminded me of Las Ramblas in Barcelona!

We walked around Pike Market Place, saw the first Starbucks, and had sandwiches on a soft patch of grass near the waterfront.

The first Starbucks ever!

Seattle sandwiches are pretty good, but we would hear more about them the following day…

Waterfront grass.

Later on we headed home to change before going to a potluck organized by a fellow intern. I got to meet other interns from Georgia Tech and all over the US, and some from Canada, too!  We went home early because we had intern orientation to go to the next day.  Overall, it was a lovely first day of summer in Seattle!
