064 – Second Most Famous Carpet

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.
