H Mart Opens

Dear Liza,

When you were visiting and we went for a walk, we went past a store that wasn’t open yet. We have been waiting for over a year now, and today, H Mart opened! This store is at the corner of SE 33rd and Belmont and is now our closest grocery store, so we will be seeing a lot if it, I’m sure.

This morning we went for a walk, appreciating all the tulips in the neighborhood. The tree blossoms have faded, and the wisteria are just beginning, but the tulips are in full bloom, and they are amazing.

At 10:30 we were able to enter the store with about fifty other folks, with about fifty more just behind us.

There were fruits and vegetables, huge bags of rice, and lots of delightful packaged foods from Korea and China.

Up front was a deli that offers hot dishes and sushi, and in the back corner are live (and dead) fish. It was all very interesting and very crowded, both with fish and people!

We bought some mochis with red bean paste inside, some grapes, and some new teas.

We got home, nibbled the mochi, had some tea, and then headed off for our next adventure. I wonder what I’ll find next?
