Indian summer descended on Portland. I rode off the hillside and toured the city. Spent some time in a trendy coffee shop. Spent other time in the Public Library. It has the most beautiful inscribed black marble stairs I’ve ever seen.
Is this the kind of bumper sticker paradox that is making Hillary loose steam?
In the afternoon I visited The Circus Project, a group that introduces homeless youth to circus training. Then I rode along the waterfront to my warmshowers hosts, a cooperative at Reed College. We had a delicious vegan meal, talked about thought provoking ideas, and listened to great music. It was all fun – even the 10 p.m. campus wide fire drill for which he had to evacuate to a nearby field.
