Keep Portland Weird

@ VOL 156 ON APR 13, 2018

From naked bike rides to goat yoga, the unipiper to Portlandia, PechaKucha Portland, OR organizer Kathryn Peck always knew Portland was a unique place, but only when she moved there did she understand all of the wonderful things that it had to offer.

裸のバイクライダーからヤギのヨガ、コスプレでバグパイプを演奏する集団ユニパイパーなど、Kathryn Peckさんは以前からポートランドが独特な土地であるとはわかっていましたが、実際現地に住んでみると、そこでの全ての奇想天外かつ素晴らしいことは必然なんだと納得しました。
