Portland has beer.

While in Portland we discovered that the great city was having a celebration, in fact it was having a festival. The Oregon Brewers festival. Naturally we figured “when in Rome” and grabbed a skyphos.

Here we met many other wondering Michiganders and chatted over samples of beers like “Dragons Milk” and “Hell or High Watermelon.”

After the festival we went to hear some spoken word poetry soaked with music and art. It was such a great time hearing those vegans play, and meeting Svetolskcki, a Latvian journalist who was traveling in the US for a little while.

The only downer about Portland was the friendly parking ticket that was left for us on the car window shield. We had decided to spend the night in the car, but wanted to make sure we parked it in a safe spot, across the street from Tiffany’s. But it seams Portland’s parking meter enforcers wake up pretty early, at least earlier than us. We guess we wont be parking in metered lots anymore. Lesson learned.
