Minnesota Day 3

Yesterday we went on a 2 and 1/2 hour Grayline bus tour of the Twin Cities. We met the tour bus along the Mississippi River in downtown St Paul and had them drop off us off on Lake Bda Maka Ska in Minneapolis. I know the Twin Cities better than most other cities (topic for another blog post) but I learned so much on this tour. The themes of the tour were water and the former rivalry between the two cities.

Minnesota State Capitol
Cathedral of St Paul-the archbishop made sure the dome stood just a bit higher than the capital dome.
One of the many beautiful homes we saw on historic Summit Avenue.
Minnehaha Falls (a place people have visited for centuries, named by the Dakota long before Longfellow wrote the poem that launched his fame)

I haven’t been taking photos at night but our keynote speaker was Aisha Cox, who opened up the Parable of the Good Samaritan and asked us all “What do you want to be known for?”
