I’ve been a sharing the narrative of the underground as a tour guide in Pioneer Square since 2013. I took the job to pay off my student loans, but it turned out to be such a pleasure revealing the layers of the city’s history, especially related to the underground, that I kept the job for the enjoyment of it!
Weirdly enough, I don’t drink coffee or eat seafood…why do I live here!? (Sometimes I ask myself.) I enjoy the blanket of dreary fall days which often require a cup tea for me instead. The best place to truly experience tea is at Zen Dog’s Tea House in Crown Hill.
I love how diverse this city’s food culture is. You can travel the world in one small neighborhood. One of my favorite restaurants is Turkish: Café Turko (located in my neighborhood, Fremont!)
Aside from giving tours, I make art and clothing, I weave chairs and work as an apprentice for a local artist, and I teach yoga and host a weekly donation yoga class in Wallingford. If you’d like to parooze my crazy world, check out: http://www.janelleabbott.com
I would love to go as far back in time as necessary to see the world before man made much of a mark on it. I wouldn’t want to relegate myself to one spot though, I’d want to travel the world and see it in its purist form.
