My brother had to move to Portland OR last year for his job.
Ever since he moved there, he has been literally begging me to come visit him.
I guess he is homesick or something. I keep telling my brother that I don’t really wanna come all the way there to the other side of the country. I will have to fly thousands of miles to get there to visit. I mean, I love my brother and everything, butI really don’t like traveling all that much. However, he keeps on telling me that it’s really worth the trip to go to Portland. He keeps trying to entice me with all kinds of promises. He says that Portland is full of theaters, parks, shopping, and all kinds of museums. He also says that there are lots of attractions downtown in Portland and that the boutiques are great for shopping in. He loves the local coffee houses where they grind the beans in front of you and he says that the food trucks there are amazing. The more he talks about it, the more he is wearing down my defenses. I haven’t told him that though. I’m actually thinking of booking a flight and going out there to surprise him. He says that Portland is so great and that they have live music all the time, and that’s really what pushed me over the edge. I am a sucker for live music, and he knows it. I think that’s why he saved that little bit of information for the end. He knew that was what would get me to come to Portland!
