“There is no death, only a change of worlds.” Chief Seattle

There are quite a few obligatory things that you must do, see, visit and experience when you go to Seattle, everybody knows that. If you go all the way to Seattle and you don’t go to the top of the Space Needle, I don’t trust your judgement as a human being. Likewise, if you go all the way to Seattle and do not pay homage to the greats: Jimi, Kurt, Bruce, the ferris wheel… just what exactly are you doing with your life?

Today I went to the grave of Jimi Hendrix. It was beautiful in the sad way that only grave sites of legendary musicians who died at the age of 27 from a drug overdose can be. We said a prayer in English and in Spanish for Jimi, I think he would have appreciated it.

I took a ride on that big ass ferris wheel on the water and had a great time goofing off. Seattle is a fun city and I have been having all the funs.

all the funs
