Portland To-Day

Tuesday, July 13, 1999 –

Got to Portland yesterday afternoon, Greyhound bus from Lincoln City. Walked to youth hostel in Hawthorne, had beers at local bar. This morning, beautiful morning, walked to downtown, had to wait for boat to cross Hawthorne Bridge drawbridge. Funny bridge, old grating and cars whine when they pass you, kinda spooky. Signs warning about jumping off bridge, took a pic. Downtown has a collegiate feel. Almost like college campus. Went to art museum, too hungover to take good notes. Portland cool city want to come sometime alone and spend three weeks here at least.
