I've never seen so many homeless people like in Portland downtown. Young people, old people, women, men live in the streets. Often the people are in groups under several umbrellas protected from the rain as it's raining all the time. Or they sleep somewhere. Some sit around with huge plastic bags next to them, it seems to be their belongings. Some have dogs and cats to carress and to love.
We had left Portland yesterday in the evening.
It was dark already when we arrived in Phoenix. When we left the airport building warm air blew into my face and this miracled a smile on my face. I look out of the window and I see that the sun is shining. :)
Before anything goes on, we'll have breakfast here......
