How I ended up with Portein?


Honestly, I have chosen Portein name because  first, all the names I wanted to take was gone, second, Portein sounds like ‘port’, I mean ‘portfolio,’ my  port, portfolio in here…

I see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Portein today. It says ‘Portein (Romansh: Purtagn) was a municipality in the district of Hinterrhein in the Swiss canton of Graubünden. On 1 January 2010 the municipalities of Portein, PräzSarn and Tartar merged into the municipality of Cazis[1].’  

As you can see the population of Portein is 65 at the most crowded days, so the town does not seem very popular but I am sure it is very special. If you are from Portein or you’ve been there, please send me its photos, and anything about the town to publish here, thank you…
