|Rainbow family refugees|
I simply had to stop and talk. Turns out they were in Portland for a court date. They had passed through Portland earlier in the summer, on their way to the Rainbow Family gathering (which was in Gifford Pinchot National Forest, up in Washington state), and they'd run afoul of a city ordinance about alcohol in a public park. Indeed, the police had issued them a citation for having opened a can of beer in Mount Tabor park!
So they were in town long enough for their appointment with the judge and then were off to wherever life took them next. She mentioned family in Wisconsin.
