One of my favorite places to be is downtown Portland. So many coffee shops. A concert in the park. Lots of people to watch.
Yesterday, we did a few more 'touristy' things. We visited the food carts at 9th and Alder, first getting a latte, a cappuccino, and some beans for coffee at the boat, and then Thai food, which we carried a few blocks to Director Park and Teachers Fountain. We dubbed it 'Euro Park' for the very urban-contemporary design.
The curator had fun showing us a few special items, being we were the only visitors present at the time. Here he is showing some handcuffs that belonged to the man on the horse in the photo behind. I forget the officer's name, but his great-granddaughter visited recently and was allowed to handle this item.
And a final shot--the original City Seal.
