Today was very slow. The rain was coming down in sheets. As Jen said, 'when Portlanders are carrying umbrellas you know the weather is bad!' Diep, who has Red Guava next door, was doing pretty good business selling his hot noodle soups. That's a photo of him down below with his aunt. I realized that my menu is geared towards sunny weather.

I've been overhearing lot's of funny phrases from passersby. A woman and man walked by. The woman was saying, '...and then I got discouraged that button down shirts don't work so well.'
