Secrets of Portland

In Portland, the Chinese restaurants have fish that float through the air. It is quite miraculous. In fact, there are few places that you can eat dim sum and have a giant finned creature drift by your table that isn't steamed, fried, poached, or otherwise prepared in some fancy sauce.

These fish however demand respect. And if you don't sing to them. They tend to bite. And yes. Fish have teeth.

This picture was taken at a safe distance from as to avoid the thousands of tiny razor-sharp teeth that typically are used to cut through steel and flesh. We placate the fish, I crooned a song by Sade, something about an "Ordinary Love," one that only a person like me well sated by a meal of dim sum can sing to a fish.

That is all.
