Whereabouts

OK. Spent the day looking at the surroundings of Missisippi river. Found a place called Stockholm in Wisconsin. Almost like home.

Anybody here who lives near Rochester, Minnesota? I happen to be there right now...

 

I think Walid (@Vorticon) is about 70 miles northwest of you.

Are you going to be visiting the Twin Cities sometime next week? Would love for us to get together and chat.

Well, I'm heading home on Friday (10th). But the remaining days of this week I have work to do. Due to the holiday, I had Saturday - Monday off. I was in Minneapolis two days ago (Thursday). I have a colleague here too, and he had never visited Mall of America. Kind of a must when you are here.

I never really understood the attraction of the MOA. It's just a big mall with an amusement park in the middle. It used to have a large Radio Shack store which was one of the main reasons my wife and kids were able to drag me there occasionally (it's only a 5 min drive from my place), but now that the kids are grown and Radio Shack gone, I have had little incentive to visit (the wife dragging part still happens though😁).

Well, if you happen to visit the area again, send me a PM and we can hook up.

The attraction is the roller coaster. Nog riding it, but seeing it. It's the only place I've been where a mall has such a thing.

Apart from that, I found nothing to buy.

I have not been to Stockholm, WI, but in Pepin nearby. 
 

“Vasa on the Mississippi” is one grandiose name for the Swedish-American Institute in Minneapolis. 
 

WI and MN are full of these time capsules from 100 years or more ago.

We happened to stop in Pepin, just randomly. There was some historical landmark, a sign claimed. Turned out to be due to Laura Ingalls Wilder. We decided to go see the replica of her first home, then ended up in Stockholm.
