Lay in for Kalpesh before heading out in the 25C sun, and making a beeline for the waterfront. There was a size able market on and mainly handcraft so Kalpesh looked around all the stalls. Then Kalpesh walked up the waterfront which had a long grass area running alongside it. Then Kalpesh weaved in and out the streets and found a food market, shops, fountains and statues. Kalpesh ended up again at the first market relaxing and listening too a girl playing a harp, various singers including hillbillies singing I wanna be like you from the Jungle Book. Perfecto. Was a great relaxing day. Kalpesh headed back to hostel where they made food for hostelers, yum spaghetti. Kalpesh and couple of people decided to go out, but where to. Feel the rhythm, feel the rhyme, get up and go, its ice skating time. Kalpesh not been on skates for 20 odd years, Kalpesh fell over and held the edge a lot. Kalpesh Indian heritage no like ice. However fun was had by all. Exhausted Kalpesh was from the skating, so headed back to hostel.Another lay in for Kalpesh before heading out in the 27C sun, only half day before train to next place so Kalpesh went to book store to get funnily enough a book. Kalpesh went to biggest book store Kalpesh ever been too and Kalpesh brought The Hunger Games. Kalpesh went waterfront and Kalpesh read while getting tan, before moving to more tranquil area in the city (a small park in the city). Kalpesh headed back to hostel to pick up bags and next part of the states. Kalpesh had nice relaxing time in Portland, very laid back and has no sales tax. Kalpesh like.
