Wacky, weird Portland. You just have to love it.  The City of Roses is chock full of comical, kooky people.  In Portland, “Keeping it Weird” just seems to come naturally.

Global Gallop is a heat-seeking missile when it comes to ferreting out the funny, far-out side of any destination. Drawing inspiration from a book about Portland by Chuck Palahniuk, titled Fugitives and Refugees, we set off in search of weird Portland.  It didn’t take us long to hit pay dirt.

When it comes to weird Portland, a picture is worth a thousand words.  So, we hope you enjoy our photo essay featuring the droll quirkiness that is Portland, Oregon.

      Indeed we do. But who knew someone had built a statue to honor the ritual? Will do. We have a couple of things that I think will be interesting.
