A Trip to Portland

I just got home from three fun-filled nights and days in Portland. It's such a vibrant and interesting town in which to wander. Here's some of what I saw: a horse of a different color, a clown who knows my friend kelly,
bike racks at Powell's Books with quotations on them, a rose garden, the Bagdad cafe and the youth hostel in the NW neighborhood where I stayed. The hostel hasprivate rooms which are cheap and comfortable as well as dorm rooms and a communal kitchen where you can cook to save money on meals. It's an easy walk to the Pearl district from their location on no 18th and Glisan.
