...And the Livin' Easy

Summer is officially here in downtown Portland. It was warm by the PSU campus, but it is straight up HOT downtown. I'm sitting in Pioneer Square with just a tank top. I had to take off my shoes and roll my pant legs up! I'm from Alaska, I'm not acclimated to this heat! My free hot starbucks coffee in honor of Earth Day probably didn't help my internal temperature, but I'm fairly certain passing up free coffee is a sin. 

Pioneer Square, although one of Portland's best known tourist destinations is also one of the coolest places in downtown. It's a large open courtyard with free wifi (which I'm using now) food vendors, coffee, public transit and shopping surrounding it.
There is always something happening, and it's a pretty sure-fire place to get in some good people watching. 
On another note, I apologize for the somewhat crappy photos, these were taken with photobooth on my macbook. Currently, my camera is stuck in Alaska. Mega sadface. I promise my photography is much better than this! You can see some of my real photos under the "Portland" page.

Now, if you'll excuse me, some too-expensive-for-my-college-budget-but-I-don't-care clothing needs to get bought. Mommy sent me an easter basket and this was in it. <3 mamma.

  1. This makes me miss Portland so much! (My husband went to college there, and I would often go to visit him when we were dating.)
