Interesting. I've never been there, and this is the feeling I get from it. Pictures and second hand accounts and such.

Portland, Mountain views, rivers, Bridges, trees, green. Homeless, Beggers, and People constantly spitting on the sidewalk. Must be a West Coast thing from San Fran and on up the coast to the Northwest, using the streets and sidewalks as restrooms. Other than the georgraphical beauty, the other unattractive traits many are to high to notice.
