I didn't realise that when I visited Portland, I'd be able to visit China on the same trip - but stepping through the gates of the Lan Su Chinese Garden, that's really what it felt like.
Since this trip was 90% conference, and only a tiny amount of time for sightseeing, I didn't bring my proper camera. I regret that a little (though it was nice to have lighter luggage), but I still think the garden is better described with pictures than with words. From the moment you step in from the street, you could be in ancient China.
Of course if you look up beyond the Chinese pavillions, you're straight back into modern-day America...
