Portland is a great city even has a book store that takes up a whole city block and is three stories high! love that store. Oh, that be Powell Books.
You wont be there long before you will have mastered the skills of a race car, salom and demolition derby driver as the traffic is the worst on the west coast outside of Seattle Washington. The trick is to not make sudden moves and always allow lots of room between you and the car in front of you so as to give you manuvering room in a pinch
