Portland, ME

Love this city: people are friendly, outdoory but urbane. According to Wiki, the city of Portland has a 67,067 population but the greater Portland area (incl. New Hampshire and Vermont) has 500k (1/3 of total pop of Maine!) to support the city.

We stayed at Black Elephant Hostel – because of their lovely lobby; dined at Union and visited their downtown, wharfs, Fort Allen Park @ Eastern Promenade and Head Light – a 1790 lighthouse that was commissioned by President George Washington.

Our second day there is 9/11 … Long Live the Good and Decent!!
