The Great Wall..

of gum, literally.  The Seattle Gum Wall located in Post Alley is one of the most germ infected tourist spot in the world- I'm not surprised, this is definitely not a place for germaphobes. 

This Gum Wall started in the early 1990s?!  Can you believe that?  The theater attendants attempted to scrap the Gum Wall twice, but gave up in 1999 when it became a certified tourist attraction of Seattle. Now it is filled with thousands of pieces of chewing gum, of any color imaginable. And, as the wall grows, the chewing gum art becomes more sophisticated. You’ll find names written with pieces of gum, and symbols like hearts or the peace sign.
