||Monte and Kristina made good on
their promise to show us around Minneapolis. I didn't carry a camera despite
the extreme photogenicity of the Fresh Start Cafe, Grumpy's, the New French
Bar, the railroad bridges from which we watched the city and Mississippi
by night and day, and all the other places and faces they introduced us to.
The Matchbox was our base, and while I don't mind the missed photo opps (it's
good to "go without"), I wish I'd sampled the
soup o' the day.
