Portland is beautiful. Love the food, the people, the scenery. This is my dream place to live in the future.

You can see the mountain!!!
How cool is it to take a tram to work every day?

Marriot Downtown
My hotel room had a balcony with a gorgeous view of the river front.
Outside my balcony: in the day time, you could see the mountain view too.

Juice craze at Greenleaf Juicing Company
