Portland, OR

Spent a day in Portland, OR.  Note, I went there in July and it’s December now, I know.  I’m just using the holiday time to catch up with posting. Anyway, I recall thinking this is a really gorgeous place to visit and must be a superb city to live in.  Can’t say anything about the cost of living here since I was here for just one day and only went to one restaurant; BUT, the place is very clean, people are polite and courteous, etc etc.  I need to visit here for a week to get to know the city.  It also looks t one very skatable so next time I’m bringing my inlines with me.

Video mashup of my trip:

Hotel is awesome.  I think this might be the best hotel I have stayed in within the continental United States.  Here, I found it!  It’s called Hotel Eastlund.  I definitely highly recommend it. Very art-filled place.

The hallways are awesomely black-and-white.

Look at how they did the floor numbers?!  Right in the mirror.  Very impressive.

The upstairs bar / restaurant is filled with the local hipster crowd. Ah, I wish I had some time here!

And, at least in this restaurant, there is microbrew culture here that rivals ours.
