Portland Daily Photos In Seattle

Hey, you know that face in the center! I passed on your many greetings to Meead of Portland Daily Photos (formerly of Mashhad Daily Photo). He was in Seattle today for a conference at UW with fellow Portland State engineering grad students from the Itelligent Transportation Systems Lab, Wei (left) and Ping (right). We drove and walked around in a light rain last night seeing some of the sites. When we stopped by Seattle Center, Meead was telling me about the beautiful new Milad Tower In Tehran (the world's fourth tallest) and how Seattle's Space Needle reminded him of some of its design aspects. Congratulations are in order: Meead won the prize for the outstanding presentation given at their conference yesterday. Many of us in the CDPB family love reading Meead's blog and sharing his adventures as an international student from far sunnier climbs who is spreading his own kind of friendly sunshine throughout the blogosphere. I'm wishing this big city guy from Mashhad well this first winter under Portland's gray skies. It was fun to finally meet and to get to meet his new friends as well.

Looks like you had fun last night ... and we both chose to throw that tall icon out of focus in yesterday's posts. Great minds, I'm sure :)

Thanks sooooo much Kim. Seattle is a lovely city: Sleepless Seattle!

You are a kind and lovely aunt. Last night I really felt that I have a family in the US; a big family of City Daily Photo Bloggers: Kim, Elaine, Dina, Bibi, Lynette and all the others who are so kind to me. Thank you all! I love you!

Greetings to Seattle from Jerusalem.
