Kerry Park, Seattle, WA

Kerry Park is the best place in the city to have a view of Seattle skyline. Though the way up to the mountain is pretty tough (it’s almost a 45 degree angle from the ground!),  it’s absolutely worth it! I got quite some luck today as the weather is so good that I can see the outline of Mt. Rainier clearly (A relevant anecdote: if you met a Seattle native and the first sentence he/she says to you is “the mountain is out”, please look towards the southeast direction.).  And of course another landmark of Seattle is the Space Needle. As a city, I feel that Seattle is similar to Beijing in many ways (and this year we got a movie which has a Chinese name of “Beijing meets Seattle”): it’s modern enough, but different from New York, it’s not all about skyscrapers. Like it!
