The final stop on my four-city tour has been reached. And what a great place to finish off. I've "upgraded" my hostel status from the previous cities to that of enjoying the hospitality of my good friend Curtis. Actually, I've taken over his regular bedroom and send him along with his lovely girlfriend Jody up on the first floor. Hehe.
The house is really nice. According to Curtis, this is a small US house. Two bedrooms, large living room, computer room, entertainment lounge in the basement, etc. Small, yearh. I also got to meet the neighbors yesterday. Pleasant people.
Curtis gave me the sceneric tour of the Minneapolis lake area (ungodly beautiful) and downtown last night right after he picked me up from the airport. As we we're driving around, I commented on how wonderfully spaced out everything seems to be in suburban Minneapolis. "This is actually about as dense as it gets here," Curtis replied, "Oh, and this is the city. Not the suburbs."
The itinerary for the week hasn't been cast in stone yet, but it's definitely going to include seeing the State Fair (every kind of food imaginable served on a stick!) and biking around the many lakes in the area. Perhaps even rollerblading, if I decide to pick up a pair.
