After packing up my apartment, but before saying goodbye to Seattle for over a year, my dad and I had a full day to be tourists downtown. Dinner the night before was a half of a pack of starbusts, so we started the day with a big breakfast at Pike Place Market. Yum, non-artificial flavors.
Stop number two was Uwajimaya in the International District, whose aisles are always fun to explore, especially when you’re in search of the store’s most bizarre products. I will definitely miss this place.
Since everything looked so delicious, we decided to pick up a lunch of inarizushi, unagi, and seaweed salad (I can’t get enough of it). Fantastic.
Without a doubt, these were the most bizarre things we could find, and in a moment of stupidity, we purchased them. Once outside, in perhaps one of my more stupid decisions, I opened the package, lowered my nose and breathed in deeply. You can probably guess how this story ended…as if garbage cans didn’t have a bad enough rap already. Now a full package of durian flavored wafers is smelling up the city.
Until next time, Seattle!!
