I woke up at 5am. There is not much to do at 5am. I’m taking a break from watching the Food Network to post some pictures from downtown Portland on my first day back. I’m going again today and tomorrow and probably everyday so here goes!
Oh yes, I like to look at stickers everywhere. See my *full collection* (haha) here.
So now after seeing this you can rest easy knowing that I am still doing my best! Hahaha. Really, I really like Portland, really. Apparently lots of people do – I’ve been hearing a lot about it being “the greatest city in the country” and such. To be honest, I have been to only a few big U.S. cities (and all of them on the West Coast) but I like it best so far! During high school I would beg my dad to let me explore on the weekends so even though Seattle is bigger and I’ve been living there for a few years now I can still find a lot more to do down here. Just wait! : )
About being home again. Well, I guess its mixed. Seeing family & friends is great of course but otherwise, yes, mixed. I think its hard not to look critically on home after you’ve been traveling for a while, no? So I’m trying not to. After being in Tokyo for so long I’ve come to the conclusion that there’s really no comparison – these are just different places. No need to put one up against the other. Mostly, I’m just amazed at how big everything is. *laughs*
I don’t know, maybe I’ll make a Ven Diagram (yea, remember those?) or something while I’m back and post it before I return. Haha.
