New York City Vlog, second story. Way to New York, via Seattle The final destination is New York City, but it’s via Seattle, so I arrived at Seattle Tacoma Airport. I’m on my way to immigration. As soon as I got out of the immigration desk, I found my baggage, sent back the plane luggage, and followed the people to the airport lobby. It was good to arrive after a long flight. I was excited about what would happen in a strange city. I arrived at 10:30 am and finished the immigration inspection. I was hungry and thirsty. Eye-catching Starbucks. I was going to have lunch at Pike Place Market, so I was just going to fill up my hunger. Tumbler sold at Seattle Airport Starbucks. And desserts. There were a lot of different bakeries. I ordered a cinnamon bagel. I have been charging for my Starbucks card since I have been living for more than a month. I bought a bagel from Starbucks and asked for water. I got a big cup. It was different from our country. The bagels were very delicious. What I felt during my trip to the United States was that the steak and the bread were very delicious and the price was good compared to Korea. Be sure to eat steak and bread if you are traveling to the United States. I came to the entrance with the idea of going downtown by subway or bus. I didn’t know if the staff at the entrance asked me how to get downtown. Then I told them it was a link light rail. I also advised me to ride the train. I came back from the entrance and went upstairs. I then went to the Link Light Train. But the road to the link train was farther than I thought. I think it took about 15 ~ 20 minutes on foot. “I was looking for directions, I asked the security guard at the entrance. Then he explained to me to go all the way here.” “So he said there’s a train to downtown that doesn’t take a bus here. He tells you to get there. Then you can go to the Pike Place Market.” “I’m going to eat a bagel I bought before!” On the way, I met the people who returned by electric carts. When I came back, I thought I should ask if I could ride that cart. I’ve broken the link light rail ticket. It was an unmanned system, so I could only buy a ticket. I rode the link light rail. It was a comfortable and clean ground iron. It was great to see the scenery outside of Seattle. Flowers, houses, people. Feeling of a strange city. It wasn’t in the video, but I happened to talk to my grandmother who was sitting by the train. The grandmother told me that Seattle is a frequent place of rain, so cloudy days like today are good days. I waved at the airport and said goodbye to a Vietnamese woman and a woman who had a long talk on the plane. I couldn’t leave a video of what I talked about, but I thanked her for telling me that if she stayed in Seattle, she wanted to have her children stay at her house. And I said goodbye to the Vietnamese women who would like to live a new life in the United States. It was a pity that they did not ask for their contact or e-mail address later. The short meeting was the last meeting. I thought about the short ties and the strangeness of being in this strange city. I arrived at Westlake Station. I went out of the station on the escalator. Big buildings. I feel different from New York again. With stores of multinational brands such as Old Navy, Gap, Sephora I could see buildings like Westlake Center and Macy’s. I walked towards Pike Place Market. I thought it was unusual because I heard seagulls crying in the city center. Probably because it was close to the sea. “I hear a gull!” “Wow ~ electric car over there!” Doves and seagulls were flying together. A man threw a huddle and pigeons and seagulls gathered. I started smelling the sea at the end of my nose. I saw the sea across the street. I saw a public market sign. “Wow ~ the sea!” Pine Street. And stores. On the way down to the market, I saw a left side alley and people were crowded. So I went wondering. “What is it here?” There was a long line of people in an alley. “Let’s ask?” I was curious about the long lines and asked the staff. I’m not good but I asked in poor English ^^ Me: We’re here for the first time. Why are people standing in a long line? Is it delicious? ” Staff: According to Yelp, it’s the number one restaurant in the United States. Because most of the five star reviews in Yelp have been left behind and we are the best restaurants in Chowder in countless areas like Washington and Oregon. ” Staff: (pointing to the picture in the pamphlet) This is the best selling chowder. New England Clam Chowder! Me: Thank you very much! Clerk: Would you like a piece of paper with the menu on it? Me: Yes! “I heard that Chowder is famous. Ah! Here it is!” “Can we wait and eat?” People lined up long and asked the staff in front of the restaurant. Then Chowder is a delicious restaurant. So I lined up. It was a place I came across by seeing a long line, but later I found it a famous place for sightseeing and locals. Lots of locals and tourists come. There were award winning histories on the interior walls. Clam chowder is an American soup stewed with clams, seafood, bacon, corn, and vegetables. The weather was chilly, so I wanted to eat warm food, but I thought it was fine. There were ‘New England Clam Chowder’, ‘Smoked Salmon Chowder’ and ‘Crab Oyster Chowder’. I ordered ‘Crab Oyester Chowder’. Later, when I learned about this place, salmon and English chowder seemed famous. The crab oyster chowder I ate was delicious. Chowder can be picked up in a disposable bowl or in a slice of bread, like Pane. And I had a crab roll. Chowder is good for my taste. It was better to eat with bread but it’s salty for Koreans. The ingredients in the soup are good and the seaside is fresh, so the seafood is fresh and the soup is sued. In general, the food I ate in the United States was larger than that of Korea, so I felt salty to my taste. I’ve had lobster rolls in New York before, but I’ve never eaten crab rolls here for the first time. A lot of crab meat! It was really delicious. Visit the Pike Place Market Pike Place Market in Seattle, Washington, USA is officially the first market in the United States and the oldest market in the United States. The Pike Place is named after the main road where the market is located. Markets form northwest from Pike Street to Virginia Street. It opened on August 17, 1907 and has a very long history of more than 100 years. In 1907, eight farmers opened the door with one heart and one heart and began to trade. Many years later, it is now a symbol of Seattle and a popular tourist attraction. As I made the video, I learned more about this market. Seattle citizens say that this mayor is the soul and heart of Seattle. I felt that a market with a long history and tradition means a lot to citizens. Fresh fruit, bread shops, vegetables, fish, etc. The appearance of a lively market in a strange city. Then we went into the area labeled Public Market. Golden pig statue at the entrance. It’s a mascot, a pig statue, Rachel. This 250kg statue is a monumental sculpture built by market merchants. Rachel is a pig who won the 1977 County Expo. Sculptor Georgia Gerber modeled this and built it on this market in 1986. At that time, Pike Place Market was serious enough to go bankrupt. In order to revive the market, merchants voluntarily collected donations and made piggy bank statues to induce the donation. I thought it was a simple sculpture at the entrance of the market, but it was a sculpture that attracted money and protected the market when the market was in crisis. And the myth is that touching the Rachel pig’s mouth and nose and making a donation will bring good luck. I learned this later and just watched it. The beloved pig statue Rachel! Market visitors from around the world make roughly $ 6,000 to $ 9000 a year. This money is said to be used for social service for the market. If you go down the stairs in front of the public market pig statues, you will see colorful bubble gum on both sides of the alley. This place is called the ‘Gum Wall’. I’m a place that people have been curious about. Tourists and locals began to glue gum to the wall, creating a ‘Gum Wall’. Chewing bubble gum to see this unique place is what tourists from all over the world are looking for. This is the second most dirty place in the world. Gum Wall expanded its range around the ticket booth of the theater in the back alley of the market. It was said that people who were waiting for the show started chewing gum on one or both walls. Another highlight of the Pike Place Market is the performance of throwing fish into the air. It’s a unique feature that sets it apart from other seafood markets. When the market is in the midst of bankruptcy, merchants are boldly throwing away their existing operations and coming up with new approaches to turn them into fun and entertaining markets. ‘Flying Fish’ Flying fish. When a customer chooses fish, the staff will call out the fish several times and the staff on the shelves will throw the fish to the counter and pick it up with one hand. Visitors cheer or clap. I saw it right in front of me and it was amazing and fun. There was a man playing the violin. The market and the violin! It was a combination I never imagined. What stood out at the market was the flowers. There were many shops selling flowers. Should the flower be big and firm? The leaves were thicker and bigger than the flowers in Korea. Colorful color. If I didn’t fly at night, I wanted to buy a beautiful bouquet. There were a lot of tulip flowers, and April and May are the tulip season, and there is a tulip festival in Seattle, so I was wondering if tulip flowers are famous in Seattle. Inside the market was a view point overlooking the sea. I bought food from the market here. I sat down and watched the scenery outside. Cloudy sky and sea landscape. Inside Pike Place Market, it is divided into three sections: the public market. The market is home to 200 shops, 190 craftsmen and 10 million visitors a year. Ranked 33rd in the world by number of visitors. It mainly deals with seafood, is popular with citizens for its good goods and low prices, and it attracts many foreign tourists. It is a market that many tourists visiting Seattle like tourists visiting Seoul in Korea go to Dongdaemun or Namdaemun market. When I traveled to a new place, I came here because I loved seeing the old traditional market in that place. The traditional market is the place to see the most dynamic and lively places. I couldn’t go to many places because it was a half-day trip, but looking back, I think it was a good choice. Dried fruits and vegetables. It was like drying the farm products. There were various kinds of beet, bean, sweet pumpkin, apple and so on. I’ve eaten dried peas myself. We tasted salt and dried beans and taste of beans were bitter. It was delicious. Homemade jams, various oils and varieties of vinegar and sauces. There were different kinds of pasta noodles. Fresh fruits. It was nice to find Hallabong. And handmade leather diary. It’s a hand-made product, and none of the products looked exactly the same. A picture of the space needle symbolizing Seattle. Diary inlay was also different from regular paper. Seattle Memorial T-shirt and Eco Bag. Fish shop. There were a lot of homemade products. There were lots of things to see only in this market and the unique feel of Pike Place Market was fun and good to see. There was a long line of flower shops on one side and other handmade products. While watching the market, I saw a door towards the coast. I went out and found a place to look at the beach. In fact, I didn’t know much about Seattle before. But when I saw this city that was the background of a Korean movie called ‘Late Autum’ which I saw a long time ago, I thought that the city of Seattle, which is dimly lit, was cool. Maybe it was because the movie was good. This is where Hyun Bin and Tang Wei come to mind. The movie features Seattle from all over the sky. Ferris wheel, cloudy sky and light colored sea. It also looked like a lonely, lonely city. But it also felt cool. Under the cloudy sky, looking at the ocean, I felt like I was feeling. And the railings had rings with their names in them. I think I carved the names of my loved ones. I wondered if they would love and live well in their name. The man was playing an unusual guitar. “This is a guitar!” It was guitars for sale. Guitars made with cigar boxes. It was amazing! I also sold a lot of art goods such as paintings. There was also a fish cutting board that symbolized the Pike Place Market. Items in a variety of handmade. I found the Starbucks first store across the street.
So I went there. Thank you so much for watching the video. The next story is the second story at Seattle Pike Place Market and the flight to New York.
