The people of Portland are kind-hearted and welcoming people.
The first time I came to visit this city, many years ago, it felt like I was coming home.
That feeling returned every time I came back to visit, until I realized that this is where I should be living permanently, but my neighbors made me believe welcome immediately, and that has never changed; Although I have nothing unkind to say about the people of Portland, I must disclose that they are deeply affectionate about their beliefs. There has been some political unrest, and some legal issues, due to protests from the people of Portlandâ€¦ I’m sure you saw footage of it on the news, but for a few weeks Portland was the center of national attention, and became a political “hot potato.” The funny thing is that although the news reports made Portland seem dangerous at the time, I never experienced that personally. The protests and anger did not spill into our quiet little corner of Portland, for me it was the same as regularly. I sat at beach condo smoking cannabis and seeing the Portland news coverage just like everyone else. And I was never sad about our safety, either, because as I said, our neighbors in Portland were regularly kind and welcoming to me. The strong presence of a hippie subculture in Portland leads to these sorts of events, where cannabis and political activism meet face-to-face. I leave the politics to other people, and am satisfied to rest at beach condo smoking our cannabis and let the town of Portland labor out its issues.
