New Portland

Portland is no longer a place of bronze plaques, and you'd have a hard time finding any unclothed natives to pose with their papoose and salmon catch.

Portland is now a place where you can pay $62 for half a square foot of Pakistani mined salt in slab form.  The Meadow specializes in expensive and weird salt.  Allegedly, one could heat these directly on a range, imparting both heat and salt on any food placed on top.  As the melting point of salt is over 800 °C, direct application of flame is not a problem.
