Plans are meant to be tossed away

Greetings from Portland. (Surprise?)

I’m staying in the Hawthorne District, which so far seems to be an over-sized Capitol Hill – same shops, even.

If anyone has suggestions for that which must be done or seen, let me know. I head home Friday.

Public transportation here seems to be overpriced, but I can rent a bike for $15, so I think I might do that tomorrow. Walking around today, it looked this area was bike-friendly, but the other side of the Willamette River… not so much.
