"This was the shortest hotel visit ever for us..." Minnetonka by mafootje

Short times...

Well at the picture you see a view from a hotel which for us became the shortest visit to a hotel ever. I will explain this in one of the tips about the hotel.

The name Minnetonka brought up memories for me from a brand which made miniature cars. These cars where larger then the usual i had. But they where also very strong.

When i looked up the name of the town it all got clear, it seems that Tonka (the brand i was talking about) means big or great. Minne means water in Sioux language.

If you want to know how much islands there are in Lake Minnetonka it just depends how you define islands. But there are something between 23 or 38 islands.
