Trip to Portland, Oregon

This last week end we visited Portland. It is a nice city: lots of things to see and not chaotic at all. We did some shopping although most of the shops are closed on Sunday. The cool thing is that they do not apply the VAT for the goods. We rumbled around the city for the most part of Saturday, ending up on the park facing the Williamette river of Downtown. We had dinner at the “three degree restaurant“, on the river side. Funnily, the food was high quality and the prices were ok, but in Oregon is “considered” fair to leave 18% of tip for the service.

On Sunday we visited the Japanese garden, in the Washington park. After I could had a look at the Powell city of books: one of the biggest bookshops in the US.
