Then, Graham and I spent all day on Friday wandering around the city. We rode on the Max AND the Streetcar, went to an amazing yarn store, visited Powell's books, drank iced tea, and ate thai food on Mississippi. The finale was a trip to the Secret Society bar where we practiced being super classy. :)
Saturday morning we woke up and had a 'rustic' breakfast cooked by Matt
That evening, we cooked a magnificent meal with Matt, Cate, Allen, and Alexis. We had butternut squash/asparagus/pine nut pasta with olive bread and fresh apple-pear cider. It took so long to make, but it was SO delicious. For dessert? A fresh strawberry crumble with homemade whipped cream...
On Sunday, Graham's parents picked us up and took us out on the town. We visited the Saturday Market (on Sunday, I KNOW!) and had yet another fantastic meal. I had papusas (fluffy corn tortilla with bean and rice inside of it). Then we wandered around downtown and enjoyed the Fareless Square some more. Let's hear it for free public transportation! Graham also had a berry flavored Gorilla shake.
Tomorrow we pick up the rental car and head for the Redwoods!! It will be a long day of driving, but I hear there are really tall trees there... AND super intelligent monkeys. And we all know how excited Graham is about seeing monkeys on this trip... :-) BYE!
