I live in a very exciting city, Portland, with an abundance of great venues. Since I am a ballroom dancer, and love to exercise there are a plethora of places to dance and a variety of dancing from Argentine Tango to Zydeco. Powell's Bookstore is another favorite place to visit as there are several stores in different part of the city. When the weather is warmer, I enjoy walking by the river, or heading off on my bicycle. I love to cook healthy vegetarian faire, and great restaurants abound.
