State By State (24): Minnesota

Here comes another state having a mere cameo appearance in our little road movie: Minnesota, the “Land of 10.000 Lakes” was our third biggest state of far (after Michigan and of course Texas), but we only got to see a small corner of it on our way from St. Croix Falls, Wisconsin to Iowa City, Iowa. On top of that, the biggest event on that stretch remained unnoticed: When we crossed the Mississippi in St. Paul, for the second time on our trip after New Orleans, I was asleep, and Tish once again payed more attention to the road than to things like rivers and state lines.

By the way: If you think that everything in Minnesota is more or less Swedish, you’re pretty right.
