On the train to Portland.
It looked like we were in Twilight.
But we were actually just in the Northwest. Yes, it really does look like that.
We stayed at the Ace Hotel. It’s beautifully designed, so I took photos of everything. Everything.
Portland has craft stores everywhere. They even have a sewing store. I don’t know how to sew, but I still thought it was pretty.
At the recommendation of many friends, we visited In Other Words, one of very few feminist (or radical, for that matter) nonprofit bookstores and community centers left in the U.S.
We then visited the Kennedy School, which used to be an elementary school but is now a hotel, movie theater, a couple of restaurants, a bar and a soaking pool.
So in closing: Portland is amazing. I’m already planning my next trip. Portland for everyone!
