Here are some of the highlights from the last few weeks:

Hay Caramba! posted a slide show of photos from the surprise shadow-puppet show they performed at our bus stop at SE 20th & Belmont on September 23 as part of the Big Egg Project, funded by the Regional Arts and Culture Council. The goal of the Big Egg Project is to present Hay Caramba!’s 5-minute pop-up shadow-puppet show in unconventional places. You can see their next show Wednesday, September 26, at 7:30 p.m. at the bus shelter on the corner of NE 9th & Multnomah, near Stanford’s, outside the entrance to Lloyd Center Mall.

My day made marginally better by a bus driver recognizing me and stopping to let me on. Thank you, Trimet!

Now, on TriMet vehicle número dos, I am sitting next to a heavily tattooed old man in a bowler hat. Because Portland is a wonderful place.

Sunset highway inbound looks like a parking lot full of single-passenger cars. I waved at them as the train zipped past. #Trimet
