I went to Edmonds, Washington for the day to hear Rick Steves do some travel lectures. Packed house, with tons of people taking notes as he spoke. Couldn't believe it when I bumped into him on the street later in the day. Nice guy and he graciously snapped a photo for me.
Here's his new Italian phrase book & dictionary with Vespa on the cover
If you're ever in Edmonds, you should definitely go to the Edmonds Historical Musuem.
The first floor is currently housing a collection of residents' playthings.
I loved the wall of cameras.
In the basement, there is a huge assortment of historical collections-everything from washing machines, typewriters, switchboards to nautical dodads.
