Back from Portland, loved it. [View all]

I think I spent more time outdoors and took more walks than I have in years in SoCal. It was about 20 degrees cooler and got a little bit of rain one day, Saturday I think it was. I spent time walking in Sellwood Park, Forest Park, and Willamette River Park. I walked around the Sellwood neighborhood, had a great sandwich at Grand Central Bakery on 13th. I was amazed at how patient drivers were during the construction slowdown on Sellwood bridge. People just turned their cars off and waited. Here in L.A., there would be road rage and honking horns, etc. Not much sense of a competitive rat race up there as compared to here. I would like to try spending a couple months in Portland someday, if I could find an affordable short term rental in a nice safe area. Rents aren't cheap, less than here, but still a bit high. Anyways, I'm glad I went, and I found the weather and pace agreeable. I love the bike paths and recycling too!
