Pike Place Market

The next day we went to Seattle, walked down the Pike Place. It is a huge market, where artists from the state sell what they make by hands. If it is not handmade, you can’t sell it – that’s the rule!

Did you ever heard about the “Flying Fish”. It is a little company (or maybe not so little), that sell any kind of fish and sea products that you can imagine. When you go there to buy some fish, it is always fresh. And they always make a little bit of the show at that place, throwing a gigantic salmon or a King Crab. You can see a lot of tourists around their spot. I’ve heard about them about a year ago at my school, check their web site.

At the Pike Place Market you can walk hours and hours looking at little things, trying different food and just enjoy your time. I bough some wonderful honey there from the Snoqualmie Valley Honey Farm. They had about 50 (!) different honey, and I tried them all :-) Delicious!!!
Another interesting purchase - Black Currant fruit spread. They also had a lot of spreads for trying. Some even had hot pepers and combined sweatness and hotness. Different.
It was a wonderful day. If you're going to visit Seattle, make sure to stop by this wonderfl place - Pike Place Market.

Welcome to Seattle

I had to go to Seattle to the embassy to pick up my passport. I didn't want to do it alone, so I planned a trip for the week with my husband. So that he can finally get a vacation and spend some time with me. A little get away just for two of us. It was a wonderful time! I enjoyed every second with Wayne, his aunt and uncle, Gianna and Ken. We also visited my host family in CA that I didn't see in three years.
Gianna and Ken live in Monroe, just 45 minutes away from Seattle. We had lots of fun when we went to Snoqualmie Falls. I’ve never seen any falls before (I mean decent size, not just few feet), and it was gorgeous. I have some very beautiful pictures with rainbows. It looked like a fairy tail.

Operation - Save the Snail

On our way back from the falls we found a little snail on the road. Someone must stepped on it and it was hurting. Wayne picked it up and took it away from the road. Hopefully it survived :-)

Tea Time? Bath Time!

I found two recipes of the bath teas at Soap Queen BlogSpot and gave it a try. One is “Healing Orange” contains Chamomile, Calendula, Orange Peel, Vitamin E oil and Orange Essential oil. The other one is “Relaxing Rose and Lavender” contains Lavender, Pink Moroccan Rosebuds, Lavender Essential oil and Vitamin E oil. Before I put those recipes together I did a research about bath teas and I found a lot of interesting and useful information. For example, our body can absorb a lot of nutrition’s through our skin, such as antioxidants and minerals that come from tea. This bath can nourish the skin and relax the body. I also found out about Cleopatra’s famous Milk Baths. It appears that she was a very beautiful woman, and one of her secrets was to soak in milk bath. This would probably be one of my next projects!
