Today was my one full day off in Portland, Oregon. I woke up early from still being on New York time and decided to use that to my advantage to go for a run before breakfast. I took my co-worker’s idea and brought my phone with me so that I could use my camera to snap some interesting things that I came across.
Later, I met up with everyone in the lobby where the coolest of freelancers who were staying in the hotel, typed away on their computers and drank endless cups of Stumptown coffee. We all worked for a few hours comfortably on the couches in the lobby (equipped with photo booth) which feels way more like a living room.
Steve and I roamed around the city for a while where we encountered every location of Powell’s Books and a few experiences that seemed like they were plucked right out of Portlandia (in the best way). We overheard a girl telling a guy in a coffee shop that she was going to do one of 3 things this weekend:
1) go clamming on the coast
3) go to the gorge
Just the first half of the day felt so Portland.
