You could serve yourself to breakfast and there were always sweets available on the tables. Mini-Kolo tried out the waffle maker.
After that he went for a walk. One of the big things that Mini-Kolo was interested in seeing was Oregon woods so he walked a trail through some woods.
The woods were so beautiful that he wanted you to see them. It was a long walk and Mini-Kolo needed a caffeine fix after that. He found a cafe that had a table and chair just the right size for him.
After that he needed lunch and he found a cafe that did an eggplant (aubergine) sandwich, with very yummy crisps.
The next day Mini-Kolo visited the Rose Garden in Portland, another good walk for him.
He saw roses, which were nice, but he also saw his favourite Oregon thing, the pines!
Mini-Kolo is fascinated by large pine trees.
Another tiring walk and he was ready for lunch. He found a French bakery and bought sandwiches back to the hotel to eat lunch in their roof garden.
This was a tuna mayonnaise sandwich!
In the afternoon Mini-Kolo was called upon to help out the Portland Fire Department. They had obviously heard that he had done a good job helping out the LA Fire Department last year.
On the third day Mini-Kolo decided to go up in the cable car to see Portland from the air. This was a little way from the hotel so Mini-Kolo had to get the streetcar. He waited for it outside the hotel.
It came along quite quickly and took Mini-Kolo to the cable car stop.
Now we don't usually do this but here is a picture of our people. Somebody kindly took pictures of them from the viewing platform of the cable car.
On the last night in Portland Mini-Kolo had the best fish and chips he had ever had. Now note what I just said. Mini-Kolo, like the rest of us at Baboon HQ, is English. It is believed that fish and chips is a totally English dish, so note that the best fish and chips Mini-Kolo has ever had was in Oregon.
Now stupidly I cannot give you the address of this bar, but it is in 23rd North West, north of Northrup Street. It was surprising to Mini-Kolo to get coleslaw with his fish and chips rather than mushy peas, but he reports that it was fantastic.
Well finishing his time in Portland on a high, the next day Mini-Kolo moved on the last stage of his holiday, in Chicago. We will blog about that tomorrow.
Thank you for following Mini-Kolo's adventures in Texas and Oregon. More adventures and food to come in Illinois.
