I’ve never been able to wrap my brain around how an enormous metal tube can “fly” … with people AND their luggage…
None the less, there in a huge metal tube, along with my luggage (that I had to pay $25.00 extra to check— this will be another topic of conversation)
I sat looking out the window this past week. The clouds were fluffy and fast changing. It is such a different perspective about our world from up there.
I had never been to Portland and went there for a workshop.
I learned tons!
… Mostly I learned that I have a lot to learn.
I arrived late in the evening—I had reserved a mid sized car but this big Guy was all that was available — the Rental girl called it her “Mafia” car! (lucky for me there was no dead body in the trunk.)
One of the BEST items I rented was the Garmin! This little gem helped me get around Portland with not one twinge of worry.
The weather and scenery was perfecto!
This bridge was just out the door of my hotel.
I had one suggestion to go to the Pearl District– but the Garmin couldn’t find it with me just typing in those words, so I just took a ride up and down some very cool streets. I came upon a street that had some interior design stores and cafes, I parked and started walking.
To mark my car I looked at the street sign… :) Wow… another perfect example of how the Universe has always got a way of giving you what you put out there.
Cafe’s were on every street corner… I couldn’t help but notice a very busy one with smiling happy patrons! Smiles = good food and happy people.
Come to find out it was a Peruvian Restaurant– I had no idea what to order… so I told my waiter to bring me what he knew was fantastic.
Voila! Look at what was delivered.
See that purple and yellow tower? While I really couldn’t understand everything that was explained to me… it was something along the lines of potato salad atop some chicken salad.
That was unbelievably yummy… as well as the others.
Admittedly, I get a wee nervous venturing off by myself… but I was blessed by this new adventure. If I push myself, I am seldom disappointed at the view I get from another perspective.
Just another way of looking at things………………….
