At the start of June, I finally made it up to Portland, Oregon. The occasion was the bachelor party for my friend Paul, so we had a raucous great time. Brew Barge pedal boat along the river, brewery crawls galore, hiking through a cave near Mt. Saint Helens, etc.


Equally, if not more important, my relative Puja lives in Portland! She works as a process engineer at Intel, and after spending a couple days with the boys I got to spend time with her. She showed me sides of Portland I hadn’t seen, experienced some of her favorite food places, and took a leisurely drive out to the famous Multnomah Falls.
