Things noticed in Portland

I’m still in Portland. It’s quite fun. Here are a few things I’ve been noticing:

1. There are lots and lots of Mini Coopers. I see more Minis than VW Golf/Rabbit/GTIs (and I did see a Rabbit today).

2. Cars all over are parked on the wrong side of the street in residential parts. For example: if I were driving down a street and wanted to park in front of a house on the left side of the street, I would turn around and park there. Here, people just drive over to the other side of the street and park…with their car facing oncoming traffic. Seems weird to me, and I think it’s illegal in WI.

3. I must be slipping. I went to 4 music shops today and didn’t buy a single thing. What’s wrong with me?

4. There are lots of old German cars. This is old Mercedes-Benz and BMW heaven. Every street I see a few. I want them all.
