The Places I've Been: MN

Minneapolis, Minnesota

I've been to Minneapolis twice. The first time was Labor Day weekend 2005. My ex, Aaron moved there to be closer to his friends. At the time that he moved we agreed to try long distance, and to see each other every other month. Downtown Minneapolis is nice, but to be honest I don't really like the city, and that very well could be because it is because of this city and Aaron's decision to move there that I experience a horrible heart break. Because of that, I'm pretty sure I'll never go back.

...Until the second time I visited which was in May 2006. My friend Tina planned a girl's trip weekend there, and invited me to join her and 2 other of her friends. It was a fun trip, and on this trip I did see more of the city. The Mall of America is cool, although in my opinion it isn't a "must see". It is just a really big mall. Nothing too exciting about that, if you ask me. The skyline and the buildings are pretty cool, and definitely more interesting than what Denver has to offer. But overall, it just wasn't a city that appealed to me.

When I think of Minneapolis... I think really cold and hockey. I forgot about the mall. ~ b

I've been to the mall of America once, and I felt the exact same way as you do. It's cool, but I think I'd rather see other things.
