Yesterday the bug and I parted ways, with the Torchbug heading to SAABSTORY in Seattle before it embarks on a trip across a continent and an ocean. (When this ends I hope we can determine how far he went total!) Unfortunately, I only had a few days with him here in Portland, and pretty much all of my super awesome ideas didn't come to fruition. We had lots of fun though. I tried to capture as much essence of Portland as I could.

......Finally picking up a meal for his voyage from the best Mexican food cart, El Nutri Taco! We go there probably twice a week, it is that good! Portland loves food carts and this one is especially-portlandia-y as it is just randomly located in someone's front yard. And, of course, like most places to eat here there are probably more vegan options than el carne. I particularly love the Chenchos burrito with vegan sour cream.

Then it was off to the Post Office to take the 180 mile trip to Seattle. Have fun in your travels Torchbug!!
