When I was without a camera, several weeks ago I was surprised to see this bus on the streets of St. Paul. While sitting in a café on Wednesday, it rolled by. I grabbed my camera and chased it. Why? Because I'll be leaving for a 3 months stay in Mazatlán on January 7, I wanted something to show my friends in México (and you, too!). I've eaten in the restaurant shown on the bus, located in El Centro, the old section where I'll be staying for three months. If all goes well, I'll be blogging, but without internet in my rental, I'll have to be creative. Can't wait to hit the beach! (For two more views of this fabulous bus, click here.
Today in MN History:-1854- The preparatory (or high school) department of what is now Hamline University opens for business in Red Wing. Named for Leonidas L. Hamline, a Methodist bishop, the school suspends operations in 1869 and reopens in St. Paul in 1880, but its original founding date makes it the oldest college in the state.
