Fortunately, I made a good choice with Seattle. Had fun out today and I got to sample about two dozen different (mostly regional) cheeses. Yum. Picked up four different blocks (several of which will be for next weekend's camping trip). Also met up for lunch with Aeto and Francisco; thanks guys.
I highly recommend the Cheese Festival if you're in the area at this time of year. You just wander around Pike Street Market and people give you free cheese to taste. It's hard to beat that!
