Tuesday morning started off with continued icy conditions, but by afternoon the roads had melted enough for us to venture out for lunch at what I've decided is my favorite spot in Portland: a popular little Cuban restaurant (that would have been close enough to walk to from Romaine's house had the weather been warmer) called Pambiche,
Now, if I were a hearty native Portlander I probably could have handled walking around outside with no problem, as many other locals were doing in spite of the brisk temperatures.
But I did come up with the idea of going for a walk...inside the mall.
So we drove to the closest mall, the Lloyd Center,
At one point while we were walking around Romaine turned to me and said, "Oh, no, look at us! We're walking at the mall! That's what old people do!
To which I replied, "Nah, we're not old people - just cold people!" ;)
