So, after a while I just started raising my fist in the air, and dramatically declaring, "Portland, I regret that I have but one stomach to give to you!" Because, food. Really good, really beautiful, really tasty, healthful, appetizing, interesting, appealing food, everywhere. Honestly, our entire Potlandia travel itinerary was Walk and Eat. Repeat. And still there was only so much we could consume.
At least we could quench our thirst with mango lassi.
This deserves at least two more angles, to show all of it, but the sun was not cooperating. See? This is why I am already imagining the next visit, so I can try again to capture all of Portland, rain or shine.
Here is a place that deserves a second, and third visit... Hippo Hardware. A whole other bus ride and walk from Alberta Arts. A whole other world in retail! They have it all for the home improvement, thrifty-DIY-maker crowds.
And even after Alberta Arts, and Hippo Hardware, we were up and out, ready for another explore.
