Yes, it’s true. Despite what you may have heard (or quite rationally assumed), people really do continue to live in and travel to the US state of Minnesota during the winter — subzero Fahrenheit temperatures and all.
So hopefully by now, I’ve convinced you to go to Minneapolis. In which case: hey, fantastic! Way to go, me. (And you too, I guess.) I hope you’ll love it.
But why stop there? There’s plenty more to see in Minnesota, and I know just where you should go next.
This past “summer” in the Netherlands was pretty much what I’ve come to expect after two years.
It was cold. It was cloudy. It was wet. I grumbled and pouted and questioned nearly every day why I had chosen to live in such a godforsaken place, which I can only assume means I should get my Dutch passport in the mail any day now. (“Je bent één van ons. Veel sterkte.”)
