Portland




I went to Portland, Oregon this weekend. I really liked it. The city makes sense to me. Also it's warmer than home, thus nature is further along in the blooming process.

Besides seeing G and D, highlights have been the cherry trees, yummy Lebanese food, Sunnyside Plaza, Sauvie Island and this cute little neighborhood called St. John's.

I did the obligatory trip to Powell's and managed to leave without buying anything. I prefer smaller bookstores like St. Johns Booksellers. Bought a collection of Mahmoud Darwish's poems, The Butterfly's Burden there.

Later this week, I'll share my favorite photos from Sauvie Island.
