Portland, why do I love thee?

I recently relocated again; this time from the Seattle area to the Portland, Oregon area. Lake Oswego to be precise. No, I am not rich, but we got a deal on a small condo and love it. As a result we have be exploring.

My wife loves to walk in parks and explore, so we have been doing a lot of that, including ogling beautiful and expensive homes that are totally our of our price range. Portland is full of parks and urban woods.

This is an example from the Tryon Nature Park near our home. There is Washington Park in Portland, the Lake Oswego Iron Fence Company site in Lake Oswego and many others. They are accessible, green and well kept. These are very nice features of this city. Portland downtown itself has riverside parks, city center parks and the unique park at Mount Tabor, an extinct volcano cone located right in Portland.

The area we live in called Mountain View is park like with lots of green space, paths and trails throughout the area. These are well maintained and surrounded with trees.

More pictures to come.

Just something for you to read. They are truly fucking Seattle up. Here is a great opinion piece from the Seattle Times.

Will the last middle-class person leaving Seattle turn out the lights?

The entire city is being taken over by geek hipsters who could give one fuck about anyone else. The dive bars and small cafes are closing, the local flavor being bulldozed and the middle class being driven out. Much like San Francisco.
Holy fuck, it has been a long time since I posted here. I forgot all about these blogs. I will be trying to post more and new things. Live has thrown me a lot of curves and I have made major mistakes, read that fucked up, but I am recovering.

I thought you would like this. The new, harder me. Less fat, less nonsense, more something else.
