The Great North-West

Next day we set off for Oregon, over the Cascade Mountains. It was very scenic, we were looking for some snow on the peaks but I guess it doesn't snow in August up here. Soon we headed north into Oregon. The weather is still very hot, there is no let up on humidity so we decided to check into a hotel for the night to refresh and ready ourselves for the drive tomorrow.

We had breakfast early so we could get a quick start. This whole area is so beautiful, good land and plenty of it for agriculture and farming. All central Oregon is perfect and not many people per mile. We decided to look for some property in this area, the family liked the look of this place so I guess we will have a look for a homestead. The prices are similar to those in Florida. On the coast of Oregon prices are really expensive, more like California. We spent a few days looking around, we may drive a little further east nearer the Idahoan border.

Lunchtime was coming up so we decided to have an Indian meal in Madras, a town in Central Oregon. Because of liberal immigration this town is full of Middle Eastern folk, hence the name Madras, named after a place in India. I pride myself in the knowledge of Indian cuisine and the meal we ate was delicious (must make a note of this one).
