Ambassador Pavilionis' first visit to Portland, OR

Ambassador Žygimantas Pavilionis starts the New Year with his first ever visit to Portland, Oregon. Just about a year ago, His Excellency’s plans to explore this town were hampered by a snow and ice storm that unexpectedly hit the Rose city just two days prior to the scheduled trip. However, this time around the nature was gracious enough to greet the honorable guest with mild temperature and a ray of sunshine.
