    First time to the US - comments on itinerary

    It sounds like an awesome trip. In Seattle you really should see Chihuly glass next to the space needle www.chihulygardenandglass.com. If you can get there before dusk and spend an hour watching the outdoor garden transform from daylight to the night lights.I found the Boeing tour a bit sterile...
