Time to introduce Harmony, she is my ex-roomie from about Feb 2009 to Nov 2009. She is a chemical engineer from Caltech and we (Jeff and I) call her 'Master Engineer'. She works in Orange county and has a real job trying to keep smog from ruining our lives. Here is she holding donuts from a crazy donut shop in Portland called Voodoo donuts.
The big donut is predictably Jeff's and they both struggled to finish it, much to Harm's chagrin. After the donut run, we went to see the famous Portland Chinese gardens, which were essentially made in Suzhou China and are classical scholarly gardens, which are ancestral in origin and are maintained through the generations as a show of scholarly and monetary prowess.
The gardens were gorgeous. Here are some photos.
We topped the day off with a visit to the bar at the 30th floor of a Portland building. However the day was cloudy and so no great view of Mt. Hood was there to be taken.
