  some store browsing at Clackamas Town Center Mall, Paul Roach, Minsuk and I meet Pat Roach
  for lunch at the food court. We rode the bus light rail to Pioneer Courthouse Square downtown

Day in Portland  

Clackamas Town Center Mall
  This morning after breakfast at the South Portland Days Inn, Paul Roach, Minsuk and I walked across
  I-205 west to Clackamas Town Center Mall. Here (The Westroads of south Portland) we visited several
  stores including Mary's Furniture Store Grand Opening. When Pat arrived, we had a early lunch at the
  Panda Express in the food court.

Pioneer Courthouse Square
 It is block size festival area in the center of downtown Portland similar to Lewis & Clark landing in Omaha.
 Here we made a stop at the Portland Visitor Center, explored the square and each had a hotdog or two.

Portland Aerial Tram
  We rode the Aerial Tram to the Kholer Pavilion Terminal on Oregon Health & Science University's
  Marquarm Hill Campus and back. The fantastical views of Portland is worth hour+ ride to downtown,
   on Tri-Met bus, Max Line and Streetcars. I missed the free ride on Aerial Tram by one day.

After a stop at Patís Apartment and his lady friend, Roberta Greer Home, every one attends the
Rehearsal Dinner @ La Carreta Mexican Restaurant Ė South of Center city, across the street east
of the Willamette River. The Mexican buffet was non-spicy. I enjoyed visiting with Pat & Roberta
