Welcome to Seattle, the city of rain. What we loved most about this precipitatious place was all the fresh foods it had to offer. Pike's Place public market was not only the home of the original Starbucks Coffee but also served some of the most delicious clam chowder, fresh-made cheese and street-style fried chicken. Then some exotic chocolates at Theo and dinner at Shiro's (the freshest sushi I've ever had!!) sealed the deal for me. Seattle was any Foodie's Fantasy. Watch out for the next leg of our US trip: Ketchikan, Alaska.
