I woke up late today and walked downtown to get some lunch and absorb some of the sights. The river / lake here is nice and there’s a neat little pedestrian bridge that meanders across it. Lots of dirt paths. Tons of joggers out.
Finally around 2 pm I got hungry and decided to eat at La Copa. My waitress there was very nice, and they weren’t busy, so we chatted for a bit. Turns out she’s in a band called Little Aurora. Unfortunately I haven’t been able to listen to them on good speakers yet, but they sound interesting.
Most of today I tried to find someone to box up my bike. Kinko’s wouldn’t do it. UPS wouldn’t do it. But the gigantic bike shop not too far from Caleth’s apartment did it. I decided to bring the bike with me on the plane instead of waiting on it to be shipped to Oregon.
