So fun!!! It must be pretty good, with the onions and soy sauce... I'm curious about it! Yes, the Olympics are super exciting indeed, and you are so close to all the action. Are you feeling the buzz in Seattle? I'm sure there will be plenty of tourists!

I live in Vancouver, and those hot dogs are to die for! The one with the seaweed, caramelized onions and mayo is my fave. Mmm.
