Lucky us, we got to hang out in Minneapolis and St. Paul last week! K and I visited our best friend in Japan, Christine, who now lives back in her homestate of Minnesota. It was our first trip to the Twin Cities, but hopefully not our last. There are so many cool things to do and amazing places to eat there. I would definitely recommend a visit--it's easy to get around because it's very bike-friendly and has great public transportation, too. Thanks to Christine for showing us around!
