Settling In

We really like living in Portland so far and it's not difficult to understand why.  First, we really like our neighborhood.  On a normal day, there are tons of shops and restaurants to walk to. One of our favorites is an old converted elementary school with a soaking pool that is free for use by people who live in the neighborhood.


That's us! We live in the neighborhood.

On special days, our neighborhood has weird street fairs with giant papier mâché figures of the pope


and Filipino meets on a stick.


The other thing we really like about Portland is that Eddy is having a great time at his new job.


Occasionally he does actual work, but the way I hear it he mostly plays games there.


He was pretty obsessive about pinball for awhile, but now his favorite is virtual reality.


I'll admit Eddy kept asking me and asking me to visit his cool new workplace, but I kept putting it off. That is, until he found the secret to getting me to do things:


Bribing me with ice cream from the company freezer, obviously.
