First stop, Portland!

Written on: Monday August 11th, 2008

So we've just unloaded our stuff into the hostel, after walking around the Alphabet and Pearl districts. This seems to be a very funky neighbourhood, with old brick buildings, coffee shops and italian restaurants... and breweries. We stopped into the Bridgeport brewery for a taste, then headed down through the shopping areas to Powell's - the biggest new and used bookstore in the States. Now we are looking for a nearby Burgerville for dinner; they serve only organic grass-fed beef, and hormone-free milkshakes. Perhaps there's a "green" theme starting on this trip??
