portland, oregon

Yesterday, I went to Portland for the first time. Went to Powell's books, got some good food, drove around downtown.

Since it was my first time to Portland, it was my first time at Powell's. QED. Powell's had a lot of books, but I was surprised at how few of them interested me. Maybe it was the crowds. It was busier than anybody had ever seen it. Or maybe it was that the fantasy was mixed in with the sci-fi. I hate that.

Overall, Portland is pretty quaint. It felt like a clean Memphis or Baltimore. Nice place to visit.

I didn't get a chance to see the Japanese Gardens, and there was a neighborhood up on a hill that looked pretty neat. If/when I make it back, I'll have to go exploring more.

The retro arcade near Powell's was pretty awesome.
