International District

Today's walk was another short one - 2.9 miles including the distance walked inside shops. A friend and I went to the International District to walk and to have pastries and tea in the Fuji Bakery (6th and King). The pastries were very good; they had definite Asian and French influences. The tea was good too. There was a sign in the window which let patrons know that the bakery had raised over $1900 for earthquake and tsunami relief.

The International District is a colorful area with lots of restaurants and shops and I will be happy to return to complete the streets in this neighborhood. We only walked the streets between 5th and Maynard Avenues S from S Jackson Street to Royal Brougham Way.

While we were on Airport Way, we stopped at PFI to taste and buy cheese; the staff there is very helpful and recommended some really tasty cheeses. The store may be a little hard to find but it's definitely worth a visit.
