Seattle - Pike's Place Market
We were lured into Piroshky Bakery by the constant lengthy lineup. We figured that many people could not be wrong. Inside we found freshly baked Russian goodies including a chocolate hazelnut danish and a smoked salmon pate "piroshky" or stuffed pie which was in the shape of a fish. We were going to eat it back at the hotel but they were still warm and smelled so good that we only made it as far as across the street before we dug in. We were also tempted by the beautiful vegetables, especially the garlic spears, which were the size of asparagus. Unfortunately we had nowhere to cook them.
Pike's Place Market was really fun place to spend one of the few sunny days we had on our trip. It is easy to see why it gets over 10 million visitors a year.
