One thing here in food city Portland you will never ever run out of push carts  or food trucks   Never mind the restaurant that are on every block with every kind of food from a to x and some you ve never seen 
Now with that  never mind the bars pubs or ale houses  and back dive bars 
So in this city if you tried to do a pub crawl  you ain,t getting 2 blocks worth 
Sheri was stuffed from the voodoo donut  me I pace my self 
But I'm ready to find more food trucks

       Portland rose garden      The sun was not out at the time sorry 
There are 4 tiers to the rose garden 

Portland’s International Rose Test Garden, unofficially known as the Portland Rose Garden, is the oldest official continuously operated public rose test garden in the United States and features more than 10,000 roses. Each year hundreds of thousands of visitors from around the world enjoy the sights and scents of the gardens, including its spectacular views of downtown and Mount Hood.

Conceived by Jesse A. Currey in 1915 and approved by Portland Parks in 1917, it started as a safe haven for hybrid roses grown in Europe during World War I. Roses started arriving in Portland in 1918 and the garden and amphitheater were dedicated in 1924. It’s not surprising that this garden, located in Washington Park, is one of the City of Roses’ signature landmarks.

It,s 4 1/2 acres    With 650 types of roses
