kind generous Portland

I have only been here for a few days and was greeted by the best ever welcoming party - Heat and Colyn, great day of eating, cracking coconuts, cutting pineapples and adjusting.

This town is so friendly - evidence:
1. the cars stop for pedestrians everywhere
2. check out folks actually engage in meaningful conversation
3. I have been given a lift to university and met by my host to guide me back home
4. The classes im attending, take dance and mini leisure breaks during class, its part of the curriculum
5. people smile
6. the bus driver helped me totally get where i needed to go without having a map
7. waitresses make me laugh
8. I have really cracked up everyday
9. people love their town
10. they have student cafe's - all you can eat for $7.50
