Chinese president visits Seattle
Protesters, supporters gather

P-I Staff

While protesters and supporters gathered peacefully in downtown Seattle, Chinese President Hu Jintao met with Washington Gov. Christine Gregoire this afternoon to talk about bolstering trade and other issues.

Hu arrived at Everett's Paine Field shortly after 10:30 a.m. today to begin an historic four-day U.S. visit.

Hu's warm airport greeting, featuring a red carpet treatment and traditional lion and dragon dancers, was bracketed by protests in downtown Seattle and Redmond.

Hu and his wife waved as they stepped off an Air China Boeing 747-400. They were cheered by throngs of Chinese-Americans from Seattle and Portland waving Chinese and U.S. flags.

Among those lined up to greet him were Gregoire, former Gov. Gary Locke and Starbucks executive Howard Schultz.

Some spectators waited for hours to catch their first glimpse of Hu, who paused briefly to shake hands. Many in the crowd said they hope he will take Chinese-American relations to a new level.

As the Chinese leader's lengthy motorcade left Paine Field, bound for the meeting with Gregoire, Taiwanese-American and Tibetan activists began gathering downtown for a planned demonstration.

Outside Hu's downtown hotel, both sides gathered this morning. Police cordoned off the area around Fourth and University, snarling morning traffic.

People opposed to Chinese persecution of the Falun Gong spiritual discipline broadcast messages in both languages, while a larger group of Hu supporters formed a sea of red Chinese flags.

"Our mission is to bridge the gap between China and the U.S., and there are too many gaps," said one of the boosters, Peter Zhou of Seattle.

Across the street, Falun Gong follower Chung Lim of San Francisco had a different message.

"We want to convey the message that the Chinese Communist Party has been persecuting us," she said. "Please stop this atrocity. We are good people."

The motorcade -- more than 20 limosines, SUVs and buses -- arrived at the Fairmont Olympic Hotel at 11:50 a.m. Assembled near the entrance was a large group of flag-waving supporters and drummers whipping up a booming beat.

As news helicopters hovered, supporters attempted to use their banners to block out the message of Falun Gong protesters, but were separated by police.

Ping Li, 47, who came to Seattle from China's Hebei Province, praised the visit as "great for the Chinese leadership. It's the first visit to America to symbolize a more active role in world affairs."

"Because he is a great leader in China, I am very proud of him," said Wei Ye, head of the Chinese Students and Scholars Association at the University of Southern California.

But dozens of Tibetan activists were chanting "China ... out of Tibet!"

Jamyang Dorjee, 34, of Bothell said Hu, a former Communist Party leader in Tibet, bears some responsibility for human rights atrocities and a continuing lack of religious freedom there. "He's going to hear there's opposition to what China's doing in Tibet," Dorjee said.

After the meeting with the governor, Hu is scheduled to tour a portion of the Microsoft campus in Redmond, where more protesters began gathering Monday night.

In the evening, Gregoire is hosting a lavish dinner for Hu at Bill Gates' Medina home. About 100 business, government and community leaders are attending.

On Wednesday, Gates is expected to introduce Hu for a policy speech that the Chinese president will deliver before departing for Washington, D.C.

Added to Wednesday's schedule is a meeting with former U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, former national security adviser Brent Scowcroft and others in Seattle to discuss the future of U.S.-China relations.

The Washington, D.C.-based think tank, Center for Strategic and International Studies, is organizing the meeting.

Participants will talk about China's rise and its implications for the United States, said Carola McGiffert, a center fellow.

John Hamre, the group's president and chief executive, will lead a 20-member delegation.

Kissinger, a Nobel Prize winner who leads an influential consulting firm, was one of the key diplomats in the Nixon administration in normalizing relations with China. Scowcroft, a general, served under President George H.W. Bush. Hu is scheduled to meet with President Bush at the White House on Thursday.

it's my 5th flickrversary!

it's my 5th flickrversary!

Five years ago my best friend sent me a link, urging me to sign up for flickr. And what a wild, serendipitous ride it has been!

First, the stats:

From June 15, 2009 - June 15, 2010 I have posted just 58 photos. This is a record-low for me.

From June 15, 2009 - June 15, 2010, I have received 22,052 views on my photostream. This is a record-high for me.

My most viewed image is pushing 28,000 views and climbs daily. The second highest views is pushing 12k, the next few are all hovering near the 10k mark. Not so shabby. Even if nudity may have been a factor. My most favorited has 111 favorites currently. But I've still never had comments go to more than 1 page.

And now for the rest of my year....

- I started a series of nude self portraits at waterfalls. I am looking forward to working on this series again soon. :)

-I spent a night in an airport with another stranded girl from Portland - both of us trying to get to NH. We built a fort out of a potted plant, a couple of cots, and some airline blankets. It was hilarious and memorable. My bags arriving 28 hours after me was not so funny. Having a Ford Expedition instead of a Rav4 as a rental was also not funny.

-I shot an AMAZING wedding in Carmel the weekend before Christmas, and partied in San Francisco and the world's worst hotel room Monterey, CA that weekend, too.

-I went on an amazing women's weekend on the Olympic Peninsula with five other women.

-I saw an old man, a-frame, a full on trouser-dropping, camera mooning, event outside of a brewery during dinner one night. I love Portland!

-I returned full-time to numismatics.

-I started mentoring a 14 year old emotionally disturbed boy who lives at a non-profit group home. It is amazing.

-I went to my first rodeo and it was a BLAST! Who knew???

-I went to my first Oregon State Fair, and oh, the fried foods, my friends...

-I took wedding photos for my amazing, dear old friend Mike and his beautiful bride while they were honeymooning on the west coast.

-I hosted my best friend in the world for a few days and we tore up the PNW and ate too much.

-I had my stepdaughter visit me for a week, her first trip to Oregon. We also ate too much, but we fit in a ton of amazing sightseeing too. :)

-I held a five week old leopard kitten on my lap.

-I lived through the fourth anniversary of my husband, Dave, passing away.

-I learned to shoot in a studio.

-I I finally visited Bend, and had an AMAZING time!

-I I finally visited Bandon, and can't wait for my date there again in February with Patrick and the dogs!

-I planned the first high school reunion my class will have - our 13th. Haha.

-I light-painted a waterfall at midnight with Patrick and Victor.

-I saw Crater Lake for the first time.

-I was diagnosed with a condition that causes early arthritis (which is already prominent in my left hip, my other hip and knees and shoulders are following), and it also causes chronic stomach problems, bruising, and a slew of other goodies. Good times.

-I discovered I tore a ligament 2 years ago on a hike to Ramona Falls. It needs surgery to be repaired. I'm avoiding that surgery.

-I partied on my friend Jessica's yacht. We have known each other 23 years, but foolishly hadn't seen each other in several years.

-I also saw my friend Cocoa, who was the maid of honor at my wedding 8 years ago, and we hadn't seen each other since.

-I photographed the wedding of another numismatic photographer in San Juan Capistrano. It was fabulous - and they are the perfect, sweet, gorgeous couple.

-I rediscovered that photography as "work" is most rewarding. Sometimes you forget.
