  • Day27

    Wisconsin

    July 29 in the United States

    We stopped for lunch in Madison, a lovely town where there was a band playing in the town square and a market day packed with food and flower stalls. The Wisconsin Capitol building is in the middle of the square. Each of the four sides of the building looks the same which made it hard to find our way back to the bus. It is the first time I have had to use my phone to find Robin who got a bit lost. I found him and we made it back to the bus just in time. The tour director runs a tight ship and we are all too scared to be late.
    Tonight we are in Minneapolis. Tomorrow we go to the biggest shopping mall in the world.

    Minneapolis

    July 30 in the United States

    Today we visited a sculpture park before making a stop to look at the Mississippi River. We visited the mall and spent thrrr hours there. We walked a lot of miles saw a lot of shops but didn't really see anything worth buying. There was a fun park in the middle of the mall with roller coasters and other scarey rides.

    All packed up.

    All of our stuff fits. Uh oh, are we really supposed to fit the girls in here too?
    Ok they all fit! We're ready to go.
    DC here we come.
    Even though it was a long day, the girls all did great on the long drive. Much fun was had with the travel scavenger hunt. We never did find live chickens though!
    We made one rule for the trip to always eat at a restaurant that was not a chain we can eat at home. First restaurant dinner was at Bob Evans. Great meal.Read more

  • Day14

    Downtown Minneapolis

    July 20, 2017 in the United States

    Körde in till stan i skymningen och kom snart till vårat hotell, Hamton Inn & Suites och checkade in. Vi gick direkt ut på Hennepin Avenue, stora kommersgatan med massa restauranger och klubbar. Fick snart ett ganska skamligt förslag men samtidigt ett restaurangtips, Fogo de Chao, som vi gick till (inget annat öppet så sent ändå). Det var en brasiliansk restaurang dör de (gauchos) skar upp köttet vid bordet. Otroligt gott kött och riktigt kul! Rullade därifrån och packade sen om på hotellrummet.Read more

  • Day15

    Downtown Minneapolis and Riverfront walk

    July 21, 2017 in the United States

    Efter frukost checkade vi ut och gick ut på stan. Gick först längs Hennepin Avenue (sådär kul gata) till Mississippifloden. Där gick vi en "historic walk" längs vattnet och över på andra sidan. En del intressanta informationsskyltar. Skönt att röra på sig lite, särskilt efter gårdagens middag. Sen tillbaka till hotellet.

  • Day16

    Minnesota...

    September 15, 2016 in the United States

    Just before leaving camp in Wisconsin, I ran into the camp supervisor Jim. He is in his 80s and has a dog with one eye who is weary of strangers at first, but loves head scratches as soon as he gets to know you. Typical dog. I asked Jim about things to see and food to eat in Wisconsin. He thought hard for a minute and then said, "well, I wish I had a recommendation but honestly I don't. You're just gonna see cars and trucks". A wise and honest statement. I got him to talk about himself for a minute and he started reminiscing about the days when 100 cows was a lot, he used to be a dairy farmer. I asked about the yellow crop I kept seeing and he said it was soy. Soy and corn have replaced wheat and hay. "A lot has changed in my day, lots of electronics", he said. Another strikingly accurate statement. Things have changed tremendously in his lifetime, even for a farmer.

    I packed up and got on the road again. My destination was unknown, but I wanted to pass through the twin cities in Minnesota. As I got close to St. Paul, I started to see Saturn clouds off in the distance. After checking the weather I saw that this storm was substantial, and should be avoided. It was going to rain hard for the rest of the day, with thunderstorms. I quickly found a hotel room and high tailed it for Bloomington. I raced the storm front to the city, the clouds coming from the West, I was coming from the east. We arrived at my hotel simultaneously. My timing this trip has been great so far. I showered up, did some laundry in the sink, and then laid out my tent to dry out. I think I got my monies worth right there. Then I took a dip in the hot tub, and hoped on a shuttle to the mall of America. Woa, that thing is a monstrosity. I had some grub, and caught the movie sausage party, after some exploring. What a huge place. I think I saw about 5% of the mall after 2 hours of walking around. After the movie I returned to the hotel and hit the sack, ready for another day of driving.

    Pictures: a carving in front of a cool structure used to stack wood pulp back in the day. The base of the stacker. A two story transformer Lego figure in the mall of America.
