- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
I served in Togo West Africa, 1985-1987. Had a funny encounter with a Ghanaian couple. I was taking a walk one evening and encountered a couple also taking a walk. We greeted each other in French. The man then responded with "fine fine" in English. So I switched to English and they asked if I was an English Girl. I responded no, American. The man then said "we Ghanaians just we love Americans." What state are you from. I replied Oregon. The man, who was aware of the state law at that time that decriminalized marijuana responded. "Oregon, that is where the joint is legal."
