A crazy Portland interlude
You just never know what you're gonna see in Portland.
Maty and I were making our way home Saturday evening at about 10pm when we found Hawthorne Boulevard blocked by police cars at 12th Street.
People were gathered on the sidewalks looking expectantly up the slope to the east. "Maybe a parade is coming," Maty suggested. "Let's park and go see." And so we did.
Before long, we saw bicycle headlamps speeding down Hawthorne from the east. A cavalcade of bicyclists. Thousands of them. Naked bicyclists. A cavalcade of naked bicyclists.
A cavalcade of thousands of naked bicyclists.
Like I said, you never know what you're gonna see in Portland.
