These were taken on a sunday morning in April 2005 at the north plaza in the Pike Place district of Seattle. I don't know where these fellows are from but I would guess one somewhere in eastern Europe or the CIS. Seattle is a place where people arive in America and then stay. Like New York City a century ago. Since they arive by plane, most of them, they tend to stay close to where they touched down. Three Tree Point is five miles as the crow flies from the airport. A language acquisitions specialist for the county library told me we have 100 language groups living within five miles of the library. Yesterday in the park I talked two women from Bosnia who were collecting young nettles tops to eat. One of them spoke english but the other one had just arrived.
