My Warm Welcome in Seattle


After 3 blockbuster movies, 2 major sodium enfused plane meals, and 10 attempts to sleep peacefully, i was awake too the sunlight of Los Angeles. The captain of the plane announced our arrival time, and date, and the farenheit. This was necessary, travelling to the USA we aussies are a day ahead so if i left sydney on the 22nd of August after 14-15 hours, I was still on the 22nd of August in USA also everything in australia is in degrees, and the americans use Farenheit/Celcius.

We descended to Los Angeles Airport at 10:30am I gathered my carry on luggage, and made it to the customs and cleared border security, i was then in transit for about 4 hours, till my next flight to Seattle... Good times...waiting...
I decided to take a nap on the chairs of the airport, I really felt like a lone traveler, these were the moments that i wanted to experience. When i woke, it was time to board my plane to Seattle. The flight to seattle was amazing, I was able to see the highest mountain in Seattle from the plane, Mount Rainer at its peak. It was the most amazing view.

7:30pm i made my way to the arrivals, where i would be meeting my cousin Tisha. Tisha is my cousin from my fathers side, my fathers sister is her mum. She was waiting for me in her black and white monochrome printed pants, tight black top, big volumous hair, petite as she is, she looked gorgeous as she always does! we screamed and hugged..

My crazy, lovable and full of life aunt came out of her car with my other gorgeous cousin (Tishas sister Shadika), and we all screamed together. It was picture perfect, they handed me a huge bouquet of yellow roses, to me... that screams lovers for life.

My Aunty lives in a condo in Seatac, she purchased herself, she is an amazing woman. she has gone through alot in her life as my cusins did also. I walked into their 2 bedroom home, it was decorated with, persian rugs, Black leather sofas, and wooded furnitures, and not a single wall in the house was empty it was filled with frames, portraits, and pictures of their lives. My aunt really likes to decorate. They also have a little pomeranian, named Ace. Foxy faced furry little fellow, very cute in nature. He was my Jacob for the time i was there...

Killing time on the plane....
