jaaajjj! saw some real blossoms today. isnt it pretty?! this is in portland, oregon, where we happened to be this morning... :)
some very general impressions of the states oregon and washington; defenitely more hippies here than in boston, and lots of people driving old cars (classics, just old, or just very crappy and many volvos), and more people on bikes. many more coffee places (and many cute very tiny drive through coffeebars along the road; tim now wants to start one in the netherlands) and the supermarkets actually have good bread. oh, and beautiful sights. amazing cloud formations (very different from the east us coast), empty beaches... (also so very different from the ones around boston!).
but now im tired, goodnight!
