Nomad in North America: The Twin Cities

One of the reasons I was traipsing around the US and Canada from May to June was a Points of Light Conference happening at St. Paul, Minnesota. I was thrilled to be chosen to go, and except for a quick trip to Chicago, I have not really been to the American Midwest. It was spring, the best time to check out these parts that are infamous for their brutal winters.
