Keep Portland Weird

It’s time to face it. I have been denying it for much too long. I’ve been hiding behind frilly dresses, high heels, living in Rotterdam and having a ton of beauty products.
But the truth is my beauty products are vegan and organic, I live in a squatting home in Rotterdam, I buy mostly vintage clothing and even the metal I listen to is pagan metal.

I’ve been thinking of raising some chickens, riding horses bareback and becoming an organic farmer.

Hi, my name’s Lotte – and I’m a hippy

The next logical step, obviously, is to move to Portland.

This is Sam Adams, Portland's mayor
what a babe - look at that proud jaw 

 Now, I must admit, I have never been to Portland. All I know about it is from Portlandia, or the time I was vegan and saw it as Heaven on Earth. I will be visiting the beautiful weird city in June. I will be able to share much more with you then. For now I'll just leave you with some Wonderful Weirdness that makes this city pretty awesome.

It's Powell's City of Books! This is an independent bookstore in Portland, Oregon, that fills a whole city block with more than a million new, used, and out of print books. You can find it at 1005 W Burnside 

And in case you're not convinced that this city might be one of the most awesome places on Earth, I'll leave you with some Portlandia. If you are from Portland, you might be offended by these. But, honestly, dear Portlandians, that makes you even more like the people portrayed on Portlandia.
