The cloudy and rainy winter weather here in Seattle still lets up only now and then, and then I feel I have to run out and take pictures of the blue sky and buildings that reflect it. I took the first two pictures in the Virginia St/ 9th Ave area on Thursday. The Tutta Bella pizza restaurant is in Columbia City on the south in Seattle and is where we had some wood-fired pizza on Friday night. We saw on the oven thermometer that it is a singeing 750 ºF (400 ºC) inside. At that temperature it takes only 90 seconds to bake the pizza! I fly to Tokyo’s Narita airport tomorrow directly from Seattle, and then to Hong Kong. There is a few hours between the connecting flights, and I should have time to check out the stores at the airport.
