08/11/2006: "In Portland"
Hi everyone, I'm in Portland and I love it, aside from scary city driving it's a very cool place. I've been walking around downtown checking everything out. Today I went to Powel's bookstore and OMG! I felt like I'd died and gone to heaven! I bought waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too many books but it was too good to be true. I've spent this afternoon reading on the grass in the quad of Portland State University and now I'm at the library (GEEEEK!) but I'm having a great time. I have to try and find out how to get to my friend's art exhibit and I'm on very limited internet time so I'm not checking my email. I will get to it soon though, I'm back in Juneau on Sunday.
Has everyone been following the foiled terrorist plot? I'm always flying when things like this happen. No tooth paste for me I guess! (flashes yellowed smile)...
Oh, I also met and had a lovely conversation in the park with a handsome young monk from Southern California. I always meet the most interesting people when I travel!
btw, for those of you who didn't see my comments in the last post, the interview went really really well and I was impressed with the people I met, as well as the campus and town. If an offer is made I'll have a very difficult decision to make.
