oh, toto, can we truly be in oregon?

“The sun,–the bright sun, that brings back, not light alone, but new life, and hope, and freshness to man–burst upon the crowded city in clear and radiant glory. Through costly-coloured glass and paper-mended window, through cathedral dome and rotten crevice, it shed its equal ray.” ― Charles Dickens, Oliver Twist

“Oh, Toto, can we truly be in Oregon?  Life here has so many gleams of sunshine.” __not Dorothy

I could not endure to waste anything so precious as a quirky spring sunshine by staying in the house.  I took a long walk around downtown Portland.  Je suis allé me promener autour de Portland.

Je suis descendu en ville, et j’ai commencé à marcher dans les rues.  I took the Max train downtown and began walking.  (Click on a photo to see more.)

J’ai découvert des sculptures et j’ai fait un pas en arrière pour les admirer.  (Click on a photo to see more.)

Hungry, I browsed the many food carts, but settled finally on a dish of phở from a Vietnamese restaurant at the top of SW Broadway.  (Click on a photo to see more.)
