homeless in Seattle

I unexpectedly found myself in transit in downtown Seattle. I stayed at City Hostel since the Green Tortoise was full.

Caught the @QuickShuttle bus to Vancouver, Canada. Not the cheapest option at US$43 one way. But more convenient. Free WiFi. Good service. I’d take it again.

Late Friday night and early Saturday morning I wandered the streets. It’s appealingly unrefined for a major city. Homeless, intoxicated and deranged citizens are everywhere. One decided to punch me with his garbage bag of old clothes. He does that to everyone, I assume. I didn’t take it personally. 🙂

There are missions and homeless shelters. People still on the street don’t like the rules.
