Seattle move memories: We started trying out for jobs in March and once jobs are finalized by March end, we spent 15 days in rigorous packing. We got rid of around 50-60% of house items including one of our favorite items, the bed set and some of very nice Kedaar's toys, kitchen items etc. We donated hugely as well. This was a serious physical exercise. We met some of the closest friends before we left and Sharmila/Rajesh and Aparna/Raghu helped a lot during the move time with various things. Here are some photos from the move, meeting friends, microsoft and in general Seattle..
