That settles it; I need to take a trip out there. Maybe in spring.

Ok... any available ladies for me to get a green card? ;)
That sure looks like a nice city! Now I'll go on a photo rampage and I'll even put the mandatory brown filter that has to be used for third world countries a-la Traffic... :p

IMHO that was simple and total observational genious on Soderbergh's part and so metaphorical.

I want to take and post some pics of San Diego and Tijuana -you'll see the contrast so clearly. Wealthy/poor.

Heh heh! There are definitely some gritty areas in Portland. Don't let the clean sheen of the cental core fool you!

Are there any particular areas where I shouldn't be caught swinging my purse and wearing suggestive clothing at Midnight? [joke]

By popular demand: downtown Portland and Pioneer Square.

For a full-time planner, you sure do a lot of travelling. I wish I could have your job. Where do you get the time to do all that fun stuff?
