Hawthorne Ave in NE Portland is one of my favorite streets to walk around. Its colorful and has something of a laid back, creative, and perhaps “hippy” vibe.

Right next to it is a Global Exchange, on its other side is a vegetarian Thai restaurant (VegeThai – its unbelievably good), across the street are a recycled clothing store and a used instruments store, and down the block are Buffalo Exchange and Red Light Clothing Exchange, numerous little cafes and bars, and, well, you get the idea, right?

I have all kinds of good stuff coming up on here. I still have to post all my photos from Vancouver BC and Seattle, and on top of that Paul and I are leaving in a couple of days for New York. We’ll be there for about a week and a half, just for fun. Please start giving me your recommendations now! Write them in the comments or email me if you’re too shy to comment : ) I’ve never been there so I want some good ideas.
