Always coming back home to you March 12, 2010

Tomorrow morning, way too early in the morning in fact, I will be heading back to the city I love: Minneapolis, Minnesota. I am excited to see my family and friends, but really, I miss the city itself.

I miss the diversity, the skyscrapers, and the liberal politics. I miss the kindness of strangers, the lakes, and Twins and Vikings fans. I miss the parks, the radio stations, and the restaurants. I miss the people, the atmosphere, and the Mississippi river. I miss my city.

My time in Iowa has made me appreciate the little things that make Minneapolis unique. Sometimes they are hard to see. Sometimes you would never notice them because it’s hard to imagine living differently. But take it from someone who has been away too long, Minneapolis is truly wonderful, and its inhabitants are truly lucky to live in such a place.

In future posts I will try to highlight more of Minneapolis’s unique and amazing features and show you that there are few places better to live.

For now I will leave you with our city’s theme song. I apologize for the lack of video, but remember that looks don’t matter, it’s about the message. Enjoy.

I can’t believe you forgot eat street man. Every neighborhood in Minneapolis has a unique flavor, but eat street blends all of them perfectly.
