Looking the other way



I took this picture standing in the same spot as the other one; I just turned around and took it so that you could get an idea just how close we are to Division. It's just exactly what I wanted, to be so close to a bus line that runs frequently!

Those two trees are about the same height as the two we have near our apartment. Believe me, the enjoyable shade came in some kind of handy when we had those two triple-digit events, one over three days in June, then again in July. We have no air conditioning--don't really need it--we just pointed several of our six fans at ourselves and tried not to do much at all. We survived much better than regular Portlanders because of our Mississippi connection.

I love street's scenes! It's a way to know the city!
