Halloween, Calvin & Portland
My good buddy Calvin came up to visit for three days. We took him all over the city and he and I indulged in lots of good conversation as we stopped by various cool pubs and coffee houses. Portland doesn't disappoint--it's a fabulous city. Not too big, very walkable, clean, friendly, sophisticated and beautiful. Agi and I have only really lived here about four months total so we're still exploring a lot.
Some highlights with Calvin (and he needs to send over some pictures he took with his phone): Pittock Mansion, Voodoo donuts (and the amazingly tasty bacon maple donut). Showing him our new church on Sunday, getting a parking ticket (the only low moment), walking around the Japanese Garden, hitting Hawthorne street (but missing out on visiting the intriguing "Rimsky Korsacoffee" cafe).
