It was another beautiful day here in Seattle and I went out for a long walk with my camera. I finally remembered to capture the picture I’ve been wanting to post for a while; the picture of the most disgusting tourist attraction in Seattle. In fact this wall was selected as #2 in the the world’s top five germiest attractions by Trip Advisor. Yes, it is a wall of gums. People started sticking their gums on this wall just outside the Market theatre as they waited in line to buy tickets and to watch the shows. This wall was scraped clean twice, but that didn’t stop people from sticking their gums here. Finally the officials gave up sometime in the late 1990s and declared it a tourist attraction. The wall is growing in size now and people have been using chewed up gums in very creative ways. If you are not completely grossed out my it, you can check out a few more pics of the wall including some real close up shots here.
