Portland's Chinatown

Today, after Lynn's last class at the Sock Summit, we were headed out of
town, on our way south. First though, we wanted to check out Portland's
. At one time it was the second largest Chinatown in the country
(after San Francisco's). It's not very big though now, and there isn't a lot
to see except some interesting architecture, but we were able to get our
Dim Sum fix for lunch! The highlight of the whole area though, is the
Lan Su Chinese Garden. It's an entire city block, wall enclosed, that holds
beautiful gardens, lily ponds and delicate Chinese architecture. It was
very soothing and relaxing and it gave us a calm feeling after a busy weekend
in the city. I'd recommend anyone visiting Portland to take an afternoon or
morning and check out the Garden.

I was there two years ago and i was impressed. Unfortunately i had no time to visit around it very well because i was there for only two days, but i hope to visit it again very soon. I recommend this place, it is very nice.
