When I lived in PORTLAND, I could hunt, fish and do other natural activities. I loved the people, the restaurants, Thanksgiving, and NBA games–the last game was amazing! I wish I had more time to visit all the natural places near Portland.

People in PORTLAND are very nice and open-minded. I enjoyed going out and easily meeting new people. The city is also very nice and it is easy to get around. I enjoyed trying to find new ethnic restaurants. I also enjoyed going to bowl and play pool. There are also many bars with nice music and food.

My HOST FAMILY was so nice and friendly. They were very active and did lots of things in nature. We also played darts, watched movies, and had great dinners together.
