Postcard #173: OrPDX #1

Of the 150 cities sampled by US News and World reports Portland Oregon ranked #9 as one of the best places to live. (To retire only 64th go figure. I guess I' better go find a different place to die.) So... you want to visit Portland? Did you want truth or deceit? Come in the late Spring/Early Summer or Early winter/Late fall. Go to Voodoo Doughnut in Old Town or Delicious Doughnuts. Drive your car or use TriMet. Go to the PDX Saturday market on the weekend or a Tuesday. Check out the Pearl district/Old town Boutique shops or go to a Hoarder House estate sale. Go to a craft bar or get a distillery row passport and cut out the middleman. Stay in a hotel or rent a teepee or a tent from some hipster asshole on AirBNB for 2-3 times the cost. Either way, look me up if you are ever in town or don't.- TM

Sent via postcrossing to Luzi-Zuzi.  While reading the transcription I think I sound like an asshole.  Which is not what I was going for...I just wanted to present them with alternatives and choices.  Luzi-Zuzi if you are reading this...seriously look me up if you are ever in town.  I can give you a place to stay and steer you to a few places.  Even after sending this I have more "or" ideas.  Maybe I will make a whole series of them?  
I also need to work on my spelling and grammar before sending these out.  They are atrocious.  Maybe I should transcribe and draft them them before mailing them so I can proof them a little more.  Because.  Whoa.  These are bad and I sound like an asshole and an idiot.  

And yes you can seriously rent a Teepee in someones backyard on AirbnB and pay as much as you would or more if you were staying in a hotel room.  I saw several of them when I was looking for a place to stay as a travel nurse.
