After the workshop, I stopped at a lovely park along the Willamette (called, I believe, Waterfront Park). During weekends it’s the home of the Portland Saturday Market (though, it’s open on Sunday too) which has lots of strange gifts and doodads. Last time I was there they had fancy soaps that looked like candy. I digress, I stopped at the park and enjoyed the sunshine for a while before catching the Pio back.
On the way back to campus I had a nice talk with the bus driver. He has a friend who does fire staff on stilts and was surprised to see someone carrying one around Portland. After that we talked about other sports and forms of gymnastics as well as about Portland drivers and how eco-friendly busses are (very).
