Portland - Small and Clean

As I flew into Portland, the amount of green in the landscaping was breathtaking, and the trees nestled into the gentle curves of the Cascade mountains was spectacular.  There was a view of Crater Lake out the left hand of the plane, and it brought back fond memories of a recent visit out here with my wife and my folks.

Last night was quiet, spent in the hotel bar having dinner and watching the NBA Playoffs.  This morning, it was a search for a cup of coffee on my way to meetings, and an busy morning of work.

We took a lunch break and headed to a parking lot about seven blocks from the office, where we had a wide selection of Food Carts (Thai, Korean, Mexican, Greek, Slovick, ...).  I had Chicken Pod Thai, it was delicious, and yes, I used chop sticks.

Tonight for dinner we went to City Grill, on the 30th floor of the BofA building, and below are the pictures.  I had fresh, never frozen spring Salmon, with a Pinot Noir, it was awesome, one of the best Salmon dishes I have ever had.


  1. Portland is one of my favorite cities in the world, and it doesn't hurt that some of the finest Pinots come from Oregon!

  2. Ooh... sounds like fun! Enjoy your time there!!

  3. Sounds like a marvelous place. When your meetings are over... ENJOY!

  4. I like Portland, too ... enjoy!!

  5. A great, great liberal city!

  6. Glad you are having a great time Ken!

  7. Welcome to Portland. I am in Hood River, so if you make it down the Columbia River, do give me a call. It is about an hour away. PUK PUK is a great thai place. And EAT is a great New Orleans fare. This town is all about food, Enjoy.

  8. I've never learned how to eat with chop sticks! Sounds like your business trips are also pleasant ones as well.



Tell Me What You Think, Don't Make me go Rogue on you :o)
