Here are few visuals from my PacNW trip that collectively capture my three favorite moments.
1. I explored Alberta Arts district which had some of the best street and wall art I've seen. It was on those streets that I met a few artists (two of which are pictured above), heard their stories, and connected with Portland natives.
2. I spent a countless number of hours in the EMP Musuem. The Jimi Hendrix exhibit (his guitar pictured above) was extremely well done. If you appreciate music, and music history - this is a place to visit. If you go on a weekday, you might have the sound lab all to yourself - which is a purely musical playground.
3. My absolutely favorite part of the trip was visiting the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. People from around the world have come here to learn about the work of the foundation and to share their perspectives on solving some of the worlds biggest challenges. To say I was inspired is a massive understatement.
