Oregon Comentários

I had a great time in Eugene. I went to brush something off my shoulder and it turned out to be the floor.
Everyone should get a chance to visit Portland! I initially went to visit colleges in the area (Lewis and Clark was amazing, so was Reed), but the culture is really what captured me. Everyone in the area is so involved with the environment and nature, it's extremely refreshing. Don't be surprised to find that many people use bicycles or public transportation as their main way to get around -- that's just the kind of place it is!
Yeah, the "what's yours is mine" hippies and beggers do get on your nerves. A great percentage of the community lives in a bubble, too -- unaware that there's another world out there. Longer duration here allows you to see it's rather provincial in Eugene. Many folks I ran into weren't as sophisticated or cultured as I would have preferred or expected, sad to say. Obvious amenities not always found anywhere else -- Eugene does have its accessible and lush nature, plus the great tracks for bicycling.
One word: Beautiful. Portland is not a big tourist city, but that is because people don't know what a gem it is. Come for a weekend. If you have a car you can drive to Mt. Hood and Multnomah falls, or if not just enjoy downtown. Be sure to visit Powell's, the biggest bookstore in the world, encompassing an entire city block.
Portland may feel small, which is part of its charm, but it is not a "small American city". The metropolitan area population ranks 22nd in the USA at about 2.2 million people.
Eugene rocks! I've lived here for over twenty years. Yes, there are beggers, but geez, where is the compassion people? Don't let a couple of bad apples ruin your appreciation for a wonderful town.
