This postcard comes from that other city that advertises itself as weird. (To be fair, they did it first. The “Keep Portland Weird” bumper stickers were copied from already existing bumper stickers in Austin.)
Rachel writes: “I’m going to make a bold statement. Austin is not as weird as Portland. I took the bus into and back from downtown…and people queued up to get on, the buses were clean and silent, and everyone just read or were on their phones. No one farted aggressively at me, told me about hospice work, or tried to convert me.”
So there we have it. Rachel assigns the weirdness crown to Portland.
