City Leaving Portland
posted by June 18 at 12:02 PMon
Yesterday I was in downtown Portland, Oregon, and had to get to the airport. I walked to a light rail stop, bought a $2 ticket, waited ten minutes, and then got on a train. Twenty minutes later I was at the airport—I got there so fast, in fact, that I managed to catch an earlier flight home.
Leaving Sea-Tac in cab, I looked longingly at the elevated light rail tracks going up near our airport—but I was really aching for our light rail line to open when I got handed my cab driver his $45 fare.
