A venit vacanta....cu trenul din....!
Mda...nu din Franta, insa important e ca a venit si pentru mine o binemeritata vacanta!
Plec o saptamana in Oregon!Voi gasi temperaturi mai omenesti, aer respirabil, munti, lacuri....cam ce vrea sa vada omu' in vacanta!
As fi vrut sa am timp sa va povestesc...dar promit ca o voi face la intoarcere !Pana atunci, cateva cuvinte despre ORASUL TRANDAFIRILOR!THE CITY OF ROSES!
Portland is the largest city in the state of Oregon and is generally considered the greenest city in the country and also one of the most liberal. It is also home to amazing brew pubs, wonderful coffee shops, nice museums, good restaurants and world famous bookstores. This is a wonderful city to spend a few days in before adventuring off to explore the amazing wilderness nearby.
Portland has roughly 2 million people living in the greater metro-area. The city was built near the confluence of the Willamette and Columbia rivers making it an important center for river traffic and the city's port is still very important to this day. When the town was first founded the two founding fathers of Asa Lovejoy and Francis W. Pettygrove both wanted to name the city after their home towns. This was settled on a 2 out of 3 coin toss and Pettygorve won. The Portland Penny can still be seen at the Oregon Historical Society. Portland was officially incorporated in 1851 as the county seat and grew from there.
Portland is known as the City of Roses."
O saptamana pe placul fiecaruia!De departe, ganduri de bine!
