Wednesday in Portland

September 6, 2012

Hello from Portland! Justin and I are camped out here for a week, just taking in the sights (and food). We’ll be working as well – the life of a freelancer means you work a lot, but you can work anywhere.

Today I took photos.

heavy bags at the airport :: camera, books, laptop

mountains near san jose

above the clouds :: reflection of my wedding ring in the dirty window

art wall in our hotel room

cute separated bathroom :: bed in the center of the room :: my reflection

midday streets

khao man gai cart

super excited about stumptown vietnamese iced coffee

it’s a dump truck :: they make dumplings

whole city blocks lined with food carts

khao man gai is disappointing – boiled chicken, boiled rice, chicken broth :: dumplings filled with beef and cheese, noodles, potato curry, and pork are also disappointing

excited about 2 1/2

flowers on light posts in the pearl district

austin beerworks sticker!

coffee and sweets at lovejoy bakers :: cool breezes and journaling

already bought too much at powell’s

art in our staircase

lovely fish grotto mural

drinks and snacks at clyde common :: nasturtium :: rum punch :: olives and almonds

fries with harissa and creme fraiche

after naps and a bit of work, the 6 degrees of kevin bacon pizza at sizzle pie :: justin is more interested in the hot sauce

nightcaps at teardrop :: corpse reviver and sazerac in lovely glassware

good night!
