I mentioned that my little brother Ben was in Germany for the last four months (on exchange) right?
Well he’s back and he’s having a little trouble adjusting to the laws here.. hahaha
We had a big BBQ yesterday since both of us are home now, and the last couple days had been running around collecting the necessary ingredients to make a few German and Japanese dishes (my mom’s idea). We went to Uwajimaya and also actually just happened upon this old German deli while driving through NE Portland.
^I like this picture very much but butcher shops don’t really do it for me so I took a walk around the neighborhood while Ben described the intricacies of German meat loafs to my mom.
I like this area. Its old and seems a little empty but there are random bursts of color all over the place. Purple houses with yellow trim and walls with giant murals and the like.
