Prompt #15: What is your favorite (or least favorite) city and what do you love (or hate) about it?

“… I could spend my life arriving each evening in a new city.” –Bill Bryson

My favorite city in the world is Portland, Oregon. I’m over on my work blog again today prattling on about why Portland is my favorite city.

It’s as glowing as whenever the New York Times mentions Portland.

“I love the fall in Portland (87 reasons I love it, actually). I love biking in Portland. I love the food in Portland (and food carts). I love how acceptable it is to be an odd duck in Portland. I love the rivers of Portland. I love the bridges of Portland (especially riding my bike over the Hawthorne bridge at night). I love the public transit in Portland. I love being roughly an hour between both the mountains and the Oregon coast. I love the music scene in Portland. I love all the beer in Portland (all of it!).” -me, me, me

What’s your favorite city?
