My first day at the beach, eating at Yums a lovely new place that I had never been before. Then later a bike ride to the "902 spiral sidewalk" a beautiful place where you can see the sun set at all angles, and then a trip under the new bridge, it was a beautiful day so thanks to all.
So far my time back in Minneapolis has been fun and on saturday the sun was out! Therefore after a lovely lunch in St Paul it was off to Stonearch for some sort of festival, there were so many people and good music and food! Then after somehow I was convinced to play a 90 minute soccer game for the mcad team, I just about survived and loved it so actually thanks Brian!
Today it was really really hot so of course it was a brilliant idea to bike to St paul with friends!It was such a great afternoon so thanks to Ted and Ryan, we also stopped at the Wiseman Art Gallery which is an amazing building. I also had a lovely lunch out today and then later in the evening a nice drink with more friends :)
Well so far i have had my first night and emma steph and nick all met me at the airport it was soo nice i was soo smiley and then we went to badwaitress for a chocolate malt shake and that pasta dish i always used to eat :) then we went back to emmas and fell asleep, but her and her mum were moving house the next day so the next day at 8am i was woken up and i helped them move house to a lovely new one.Then also yesterday was my first day and i hung out with steph for a bit and then we met up with Dave and went to Brits pub before we went to a Twins baseball game it was amazing i loved it, and thanks to dave for answering all my baseball questions, i just got so in to it!then had a midnight snack at the grocers before home with emma :) and today a new day so yay :)
Ok so before I briefly explained a project myself and 3 of my good friends Claire, Chloe and Bronwyn are going to undertake while in New York for a month, we want to explore the transatlantic divide between eduction and design in America and the UK, we will be interviewing many people and creating a book with all our findings. We now have a blog and a website and an email so its all almost there yay how exciting, a huge thanks to Claire for designing a beautiful website for us! Take a look, enjoy and look forward to more postings.
I am off to the USA in 2 days and will be in Minneapolis visiting friends for 2 weeks and then spending a month completing work experience in New York! I am very excited and while in New York myself, Claire, Bronwyn and Chloe will be completing a research project on the Transatlantic divide in education between NY and London and I am building a website for this project - its much easier the second time round but I am still learning. Enjoy.
