He's Graduated!!!

Our Macedonian "son" graduated from the Institute of Technology at the "U" in "double E". Electrical Engineering to those of us short on the lingo! It was a wonderful event -- but of course I cried as any "mom" does ;)

This picture summarizes downtown Minneapolis nicely. You see the skyways which link the downtown buildings making it unecessary to go outside in the winter. The reflection in the modern glass building is of the former tallest building in MSP before the IDS building was built, the Foshay Tower.

Beautiful flowers at the Cowles Conservatory & Regis Gardens next to the Walker Art Center.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Civilized, friendly
  • Cons:It's either COLD or the other "state bird" is biting :)
  • In a nutshell:Great place to live, study, work -- but dress warmly!!!
