I had a high-energy, armor piercing headache for the first day of our visit, but it went away in time to meet Nate for a pint at the Alberta Street Public House.
Favorite Portland things:
-Relaxing in Laurelhurst Park
-The skatepark, and locals ripping it up.
-Big lazy houses with huge trees hanging over the street
-Everyone rides a bike, not just the messengers, roadies, and geeked out commuters. There are totally normal looking people cruising everywhere.
-Powell's Used Bookstore was pretty nice too. I got a great travel writing book(soon I'll have no excuse for poor blogging).
-Mellisa and Jeff, our hosts in the city. High-quality folks!
The was yet another great city experience. We've met the coolest urban folks and the've been taking fantastic care of us.
