Out the Hotel Window - Portland, Oregon

View out Hotel Modera, Portland, Oregon
The last two nights in Portland, Oregon, were spent at a downtown hotel, the Hotel Modera, on the corner of 5th and Clay streets. The hotel has many nice features, especially the bar area with awesome fire pits. The hotel is in a great location with most of downtown being accessible on foot, which is especially nice. I did think the rooms were small and the coffee service marginal.

But the view out the window was interesting and fun. Fun? Yes, on the last morning we were there, I looked out the window to the rainy streets below and then I looked up. On a building some distance away there was a window washer with an umbrella. I though that kind of funny--washing the windows of the building in the rain. I took an image of it. The umbrella is visible on the left side.

Pretty neat. 

Washing windows in the rain. Yea--they must get paid by the hour.
