Fall Break 09: Portland


So, we had a single day off school, they called it fall break, so we went to Portland. My roommate's brother lives there, and it has theworld's largest bookstore, and a coast. No further persuasion was necessary. We left Thursday at about 2 pm (once my Latin test was done) and drove til about 1:30 am. Here are some really happy faces. Left to right: Caitlyn, Erica, Katie, Marci.





Friday, our first real day, was a Portland guided tour. We took the MAX into downtown, where it looked like it would be a truly rainy day. Luckily, it cleared up and the day was beautiful.

Say Say Boutique, The Real Mother Goose, POWELL'S BOOKS (this was one of the true draws for Portland. 2 city blocks, 4 stories. I was expecting something truly epic. Here's the entrance:




As you can see, I'm eating in this pic. There were tons of street side vendors selling ethnic food, and I can't pass up a katsudon. And, it was good. Thus the pose.


After Powell's (and spending WAY too much, though I did by one of my fav books, The Little Prince, in Latin) we wandered around everywhere. Buffalo exchange, Magpie's, Jamison Square, and went to Hot Lip's Pizza.
