The past week I played a part of the cast from Wizard of Oz, and traveled far away in the northern direction, to Emerald City.
Can anyone guess the name?
It starts with an S...hint,hint...the land of Microsoft and rainy climate. That's right, Seattle that is.
So, my curiosity led me to learn that Seattle's magic nickname refers to "the Wizard" living there, Bill Gates is his name....
Another version is the nickname refers to "to the lush evergreen trees in the surrounding area"...
Anyhow, my experience of the city included smelling the pine-scented air, tall evergreen trees everywhere, snow peaks, misty slash cloudy skies, drive-thru coffee stands and lots of Asian food.
