I was about to write this post declaring the carpet at Portland International Airport to be the most famous carpet in the world.
And then I remembered the little awards show on TV last night. Perhaps the red carpet at the Oscars is more famous?
I don’t know.
I’m departing from Portland on my way to Amsterdam to join my lovely partner.
As is my tradition, I took a picture of my shoes and the airport carpet.
I don’t know the whole story behind the airport carpet and why it became such a thing to take a photo of your feet standing on the carpet before departing Portland’s airport …
But, it did …
The carpet is new now and I remember when it was replaced people were selling all kinds of funny things made out of this carpet … baby clothes, purses, you name it.
I love the weird in this city …
And it’s second most famous carpet.
