I have a friend visiting from NYC. She grew up in Seattle, and comes this time of year to escape the humidity of the city. Now, for those of you have not been to NYC, it is much easier not to own a car. For those of you who have never been to Seattle, it is a nightmare to own a car, (gridlock traffic), but is required if you need to get around in the Greater Seattle area. Public transportation is limited outside the core of the city.
My friend is not much of a planner, because her life doesn’t allow it. Let’s just say things can change 20 times a day for her. Things are just out of her control.
