The Land of Cheese















I have just returned from a trip to Minneapolis to visit my friend K. We took a little roadtrip to Madison, Wisconsin where I was able to experience the passion for cheese in little roadside stops. I am passionate for cheese myself so I really appreciated these outposts. I also witnessed the phenomenon of indoor waterslides. We passed through Wisconsin Dells, which seemed to be a Las Vegas for families, with water slides rather than casinos. There was an actual water slide which looped outside the resort and then back inside again. These wonders of the midwest that I never knew. Tomorrow I return to my teaching life. I am wistful that these vacation days are so quickly over.

Now that you've been feasting on cheese, have you had your cholesterol checked lately??? Of course, as I'm writing this, I'm snacking on some delicious cheese as well, but it's not from the Mid West!

Indoor waterslides...just another reason to move away from the coasts...

i didn't realize that you had gone to visit K. (of course, this morning, when you were talking about seeing her, that should've tipped me off. duh)
i am still in my own vacation-slept-late-everyday haze.
