They say Portland, Oregon is where “young people go to retire.”
Food carts – a difficult choice. Different cuisine from different countries all on one street.
I went to Georgia. Khachapuri, lobiani, badrijani rolls and some mushroom khinkali – $8.
A wonderful book store. Too many, too little time, too small a rucksack.
Welcome to Voodoo Doughnuts. They come in all shapes and sizes. You can even have maple syrup and bacon.
I chose chocolate and peanut butter. Is that better?
Vintage clothes stores. If I was “young and retired” I’d probably wear this too.
I’d also drink more. Here’s a microdistillery I came across on the Lower-East side. A group of thirty-somethings are making local, handcrafted whiskey and will soon be exporting to Japan.
The Japanese Garden in Washington Park. Beautiful. Quiet. A place to relax in the autumn years of your young life.
