Here There and Everywhere

Expat wanderer


For my fellow book lovers – this is what the headquarters looks like. A long time ago, it was a veteran’s hospital, then it was de-militarized and Amazon bought it. They have a lot of other locations and warehouses, but this is the central Amazon, overlooking Seattle and I-5.


No lives were endangered in the taking of this photo – it’s Labor Day weekend, and the traffic was stopped on the highway, inching north, as I took the photo.

  3. I wish, Purg! I’ve never tried!

    1 contrail, several clouds, Lady J. Amazon is the tallest building in the photo, near the top, and everything in front of it. It used to be a veterans hospital, and was sold off – I think in the late ’80’s – and Amazon snapped it up.
