And on the third week, we packed up our belongings, made sure our water bottles were filled and our emergency blanket packed, and forded the river to St. Paul. Now, before you click the X in the upper left of the window, just stay a bit longer. Even though St. Paul is just right across Ol' Man River, sometimes it can seem so. much. farther.

The dim, romantic lighting and warm yellow walls made our pasty visages glow, and the tables and booths were comfortable and inviting. Our favorite part was the bar, adorned with shelves upon shelves of records and, of course, a decorative rifle. The bistro was bustling, and large white bowls of steaming hot, fragrant soup passed by, amping us up for our culinary adventure.
