After all the preparation and anticipation my friend Susanne and I finally reached La Conner (near Seattle) in America.
It actually started out quite funny, because i had my pastelbox with me on the flight and the scan of the security check left the staff quite surprised: »Is this your backpack? For heavens sake, what is in there?« I must admit, the pastels looked very strange indeed on the monitor of the scanner.
An 11 hours flight can be quite tiring but one sight compensated for most of it. Beneath our plane a sea of ice and land and frozen lakes or rivers showed a stunning beauty.
The whole journey went well and after a two hours drive we reached the small town La Conner in the northwest of the USA. After we have found our home for the next two weeks, the first way went to the Seafoood and Prime Rib House.
With plenty of sunshine, outside on the veranda direct at the sound I feel well!
After all, the whole day of arrival went quite smooth and right now we are fighting the jet lag and try to stay awake to catch up with the pacific timezone.
