When I was in Minneapolis, I wanted to pay a visit to Como Zoo.
I was going to be in Minneapolis for about four days with my daughter, for book signings.
I told her if we didn’t get anything else done, I wanted to go to Como Zoo. The day before we left, we went to Como Zoo Conservatory. It was a blustery day, and I was cold going from the hotel to the car. My daughter was shivering and I was wondering if going to Como Zoo was as important as I thought it would be. It was beginning to snow when we arrived but it wasn’t just Como Zoo, but Como Zoo Conservatory. There were some indoor things to see and do, but I wanted to be up close to the animals. We headed back to the hotel where the HVAC thawed my fingers and toes, and ate lunch in one of the hotel’s restaurants. Minneapolis was far from being a quiet city, and I wouldn’t want to go out alone at night, but even in the winter we found things to do. If I get to return to Minneapolis, I hope it is in the summer where I can see the animals in their homes freezing to death, or getting snowed on.
