NOV 13, 2015 – I spent four days in Portland and stayed with Matty and Kimberly, whom I met on my US roadtrip in spring 2011. Portland was interesting to me because of its open-minded people, high density of microbreweries, large cultural offering, and because it is reportedly a hipster capital. The city is a lot smaller than Boston, but nevertheless I was glad to have a bicycle because most of the interesting places are not in the center. One of the most inspiring things is the “City Repair” movement, where people break the city anonymity by creating meeting spaces at street intersections in their neighborhood.
PS: Sorry for the late post, I had to recover some of my photos from a corrupted memory card and still have a bit of a processing backlog.
