I have a condo overlooking the Portland skyline! I have a attractive view of the river and the city, but on a clear day, I can see for miles, and portland is a single of the prettiest cities that I have visited. I have lived here for many years. I consistently say that I am going to see, because I never think if I will stay anywhere for a long time. I’ve been here for 3 years and it feels enjoy home, however I might get bored and move to NM. One thing that I absolutely enjoy about Portland is their legal recreational marijuana laws. Portland is a champion of rights for marijuana smokers, they legalized the plant so pretty much everyone can access marijuana. I moved here a couple of years after legalization was made. I was fortunate to find a job close to our condo. It means I don’t have to commute and take our car out of the garage. I absolutely enjoy to walk to work on a clear day, then when the sun is shining, I can smoke a marijuana joint while I walk to work. That is a good way to spend the day and a single of the largest reasons why I continue to live in Portland..Most of our friends live on the other side of the country, so it would be nice if I could get someone to move here or visit, and since I think certainly few people, it can be lonely around the holidays! Last Christmas I was by myself and I spent half of the day kneeling in a cannabis lounge with a fake Santa Claus and a budtender that looked enjoy he was ready to fall asleep.
