Seriously guys – I fell in love. This city is amazing. It is not too big – in Portland itself there are about 500.000 people – the houses are cute, with lovely well-kept gardens (with actual flowers) out front, behind every second corner there is a lovely shop or restaurant, there are more than 640 food carts (vehicles that sell food) all around Portland and the public service is really good – like European good, with new buses, trams and trains as well as bus stops that tell you the bus line and the minutes until the next bus arrives. 766 more words
