Sister city greetings

Mar 11, 2013

This is (most of) the awesome staff of Archie McPhee:


(The only person missing is the inimitable Fuzz)

As you can see, we’re quite a friendly bunch, which is a good thing because this Friday, March 15th, we’ll be receiving special visitors from our sister city of Tashkent, Uzbekistan. A group of Uzbek journalists will be in town filming a TV show about Seattle and Archie Mcphee is the second stop on their trip. We can’t wait to meet them!

In the 1950s Seattle helped develop and promote the formation of sister city relationships. It began in 1957 when Seattle and Kobe, Japan formed one of the very first sister city relationships. Seattle and Tashkent, Uzbekistan later became sister cities in 1973, when the latter was still part of the USSR. This was particularly meaningful because it was the first U.S.-Soviet sister city affiliation.
