minneapolis.

actually…somewhere in the warehouse district which is part of downtown.

on my bucket list… to speak spanish fluently.

1st night of spanish class tonite…in the building on the right.

LOVE driving & walking around downtown! it reminds me of when I 1st moved to the twin cities 20+ some years ago. I was FEARLESS and went downtown as often as I could. it will be fun going into the city for the next 10 weeks.

URBAN FIX : )

i had to dig DEEP into my archives to remember the spanish i learned almost 30 years ago. my memory is a bit foggy…but i can hardly wait to return next week!
