WORD UP! how is it haaaanging??
Can I just take a few minutes of your time to tell you how much I love the Twin Cities? Seriously, best place, ever. It's like two distinct cities, in one. There is a huge variety of people in the Twin Cities, you can basically find anything/anyone here that you could find in a huge city. My favorite thing to do in the Twin Cities is to bike around town.. Minneapolis is the number one biking city in the nation, CHECK IT!
Another great thing about Minnesota is that even in the dead of winter people go out and do fun things (or bike). I went to two very "Minnesotan" events this past weekend. I went to the Art Shanty Projects, which is an interactive art exhibit of a little village of shanties on a (frozen) lake. Each house had a different theme. My favorite was the dance shanty, which was filled with Minnesotans getting down to "Hey Ya!" in all their winter garb. BEST THING EVER? I think yes.
I also went to the Winter Carnival in St. Paul, which is held at a park in downtown St. Paul. There are a bunch of ice sculptures in three categories, amateur, professional, and groups with more than just one slab of ice (they get 20 blocks I think). Anyways, the ice sculptures and the Shanty Projects were super fun and very Minnesotan.
Now, even though those both sound like very wintery-snowy-cold activities, it has actually been a REALLY mild winter. I have been able to bike around without getting stuck in snow or skidding on ice. My outfit today reflects the MN weather..
