[Stumptown Coffee – Portland – USA]
While going through my photos for this weeks travel photo I realised I didn’t have a photo of a compelling Portland landmark. Portland is more of a place to be than a place to see. It’s an industrial city that gradually lost its way when the tradional industry moved out. Then the cool kids moved in, so to speak, and it became one of the places to be in the US.
When you get to this city you will notice that the locals are always complaining – or at least apologetic – about the weather, which is famous for its cool and drizzly climate. No need for apologies, Portlanders – your miserable days are ideal working in nice cafes kind of days for me. In fact you should market it as that, especially for people like me who tend to live in the tropics and might actually like a break from the heat and sunburn.
