Portland, Oregon

I visited the Reiss Cochlear Implant and Hearing Aid Research Lab in Portland, Oregon.  I had quite an interesting visit.

I had a chance to visit the Farmer’s market at OHSU, where I sampled some of Oregon’s Rainier cherries and Hood strawberries (named after mountains in the region).





I had a chance to explore Portland as well, going out to the Columbia Gorge and checking out some of the hikes. The Portland Aerial Tram was a must-see and I rode down to the waterfront campus.  






I helped out with some experiments,  



and did some microscopy. 

I weigh exactly 43.2329g!


 I also, for some inexplicable reason, decided to parachute off the Biomedical Research Building.

Flat Knit Monita


I was told there was a rule that only Flat Knit David could travel the world by envelope, visiting labs. So I decided to fight it, and, of course, I won. Now I'm off to visit a former student.
