Portland, Oregon. This is my favorite city I’ve ever lived in. I lived there from fall of ’82 to the fall of ’97. It rained most of the time I was there. Okay, maybe not most of the time… …it rained a lot.
But you know what? That shows how cool this town is. In spite o the amount of rain and gloomy overcast days, I stayed for 15 years, and still miss it today.
I love the architecture; the people (some of the most creative people I’ve ever known); the landscape (green for days!). I love the Willamette River, LOVE the bridges. I love the food! Escape from New Your Pizza, Macheezmo Mouse! So much to love about Portland. In some ways it kind of reminds me of a baby San Francisco.
I also love Portland because it’s where two of the most creative and cool people I know live. I love them both so much. My kids.
