I'm at Logan Airport in Boston waiting for my flight to Milwaukee and from there, it's just a short hop to the Twin Cities.
I don't have a lot of experience with the Midwest. I spent a day in Columbus, Ohio, for a job interview. Another time, I traveled to Pontiac, Michigan, for a weekend with a busload of high school marching band members and their parents. And I changed planes once at O'Hare Airport in Chicago. That's about it.
So, I'm looking forward to soaking up the sights and sounds of Minneapolis-St. Paul. Tomorrow afternoon, I'll be at the Guthrie Theater for the musical Little House on the Prairie. Look for my review next week. The Guthrie, which overlooks the Mississippi River, is supposed to be a stunning building, and I can't wait to see it.
But most of all, I'm excited about spending some time with dear friends. Good friends, a new musical and the adventure of traveling to a new place and meeting new people. What could be better!
