Last week one of my co-workers here got a bit sick, some fever over the night and general feeling-bad for a day or two. (He had been to Portugal before coming here.) On Sunday I started feeling a bit of a soar throat without thinking much of it, the night to Monday I got a major fever, all of Monday I had a major fever, all of Tuesday I had major headaches and wednesday was dedicated to an incredibly painful throat.
Today me and Jared went into Portland proper to check out downtown. We had gotten some tips (specifically check out Voodoo doughnuts, which was on the Portland episode of No Reservations as well) and so we did. The place was insanely busy and we had like a 15-20 minute wait outside. After getting a hold of our Doughnuts of choice we got a box and went outside to eat. They were as you would say in Swedish “kränkande”.
I’ve been in Portland for a week now so I thought I’d just post a quick update. Things are moving along nicely with work and I have a really nice hotel room at a hotel with a pool, so that’s nice! Here are some pictures.
I went to Egypt (Hurghada) over the New Year. I went with Emma and her sister, and it was very awesome. When planning the trip, I had for some reason thought I had gone to Sharm El Sheik last time I went to Egypt but of course this was the same place. Nevertheless, we went to get sun and we got sun! I also got to read two books that i had wanted to read.
